Abstract

Recent research investigating how engineers search for information has concluded that engineering designers acquire assistance when formulating queries. An approach to assist designers with their queries is presented. This approach forms part of a knowledge management system, where indexed documents are entered into the system (or are automatically indexed by tools within a system). The method builds up a network based upon indices assigned to documents. The network (or chunk) is presented back to the user once a search for knowledge has been completed. The network is build up as indexed documents are entered in to a knowledge-based system and is generated dynamically. The network can be used to assist a designer in searching for information; reformulating a query and; to prompt design tasks. This paper presents an approach to prompt designers with their design queries, along with some examples.
