Cases in Evolutionary Design Processes
In Chapter 10, a design search algorithm was developed according to the evolutionary transformation process model presented in Chapter 6. The Design Search Algorithm is based on a set of production rules, and an AND/OR tree representation is used to search for a consistent (i.e., physically realizable) design solution. A prototype system, called CADAT, has been developed to implement the design decomposition framework. In this chapter, we illustrate the application of the Design Search Algorithm to several nontrivial, “real world” design problems.
