SIMULATION OF DESIGN REASONING BASED ON C-K THEORY: A MODEL AND AN EXAMPLE APPLICATION
C-K design theory is a theory of design reasoning describing design as the interaction of concepts and knowledge. The foundation of C-K theory has often been laid out and studied in formal terms. By contrast, this study presents a simulation model allowing to investigate some design phenomenology and strategies that can be captured by the theory. To illustrate the model, two contrasting design strategies inspired by an industrial case have been proposed and implemented.
