An `AI in Design' View of Design
System Evaluation


Is the system or parts of it reusable in different applications?

Discussion. As systems become more and more sophisticated, modularity provides strong support for incrementally developing or assembling such systems. Modularity is achieved by identifying tasks or processes which can be conveniently separated, coded, represented and solved independently. It frequently happens that the same tasks have to be solved in various systems. Therefore it is most convenient if a new system can reuse modules already implemented and tested for other design applications.
