Abstract

Software support for the solution generation phase of the design process did not yet have the same industrial acceptance as e.g. 3D modellers and finite element analysis. The “smart synthesis tools” research project aims to bridge part of this gap between academic research and industrial application. The goal is to deliver a generically applicable method and algorithms to develop dedicated synthesis tools for industrial design processes in a standardized manner. Research addresses problem structuring, mathematical techniques and handling of experience knowledge and qualitative relations. An efficient development methodology is expected to increase the accessibility and applicability of synthesis technology to both the research community and industrial parties.
