An Efficient Design Support System based on Automatic Rule Checking and Case-based Reasoning
- 72 Downloads
A well building design support system can not only meet the rules but also automatically recommend the appropriate alternatives for designers, but most modifications now are conducted in the manual way. Although the method of automatic rule checking can effectively identify the compliance of rules in Building Information Modeling (BIM) models, recommendation supports are still lacked in applications. This paper aims to propose a design support system, using automatic rule checking to identify the compliance of rules and adopting case-based reasoning to provide recommendations via ontology and semantics. The AHP-TOPSIS (Analytic hierarchy process-Technique for Order Preference by Similarity to an Ideal Solution) method is used to give reliable recommendations rank. A real case is adopted as an illustrative example. Results show that the proposed system can increase the design efficiency in both design checking and modifying. Similar applications can be extended to other fields and rules.
