Section: METHODS AND TOOLS IN DESIGN PRACTICE
Within this paper an effort was made in presenting the reasons why evolutionary algorithms and especially genetic algorithm present suitable basis for creation of design tools which should aid designer in conception phases of design processes. After the introduction in the second chapter the motivation for applying the genetic algorithms is being discussed. Further, in the third chapter, the evolutionary design process is being compared with the human performed design process. Then a case study is presented with the simplified process of conceptual design being conducted as an optimisation process where the goal of fitness function was the obtaining of functionality by following a set of rules. Finally, in the end a few conclusions were drawn and the guides for the future research work were placed.
