Abstract

This paper is based upon the premise that computers can do more than just 'number crunching' to assist a designer in his task. Key features of the design process where traditional computer-aided design (CAD) approaches have had limited success are presented. The approach of expert systems, which shows promise of assisting in these features, is outlined and a system based on this approach, DESIGNER, described. This system can be applied to any numerical design problem and is illustrated through an example from preliminary ship design.
