Improving conditions for reuse of design solutions - by means of a context based solution library

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review


    Among the most important reasoning mechanisms in design is reasoning by analogy. One precondition for being able to reason about the properties and functionalitues of a product or subsystem is that the context of the solution is known. This paper presents a computer based solution library where solutions have context. The library has aluminium technology as application area and has been developed in co-operation between the Technical University of Denmark, SkanAluminium and leading aluminium companies within Scandinavia. The library has been tested in a number of companies and good results have been obtained. So fare more than 400 companies, universities and engineering academies have decided to utilise the solution library
