DEVELOPING COMPUTATIONAL TOOL FOR GENERATION OF OPERAND TRANSFORMATION VARIANTS IN TECHNICAL PROCESS
Aim of this paper is to present a grammatical evolution based tool for generation of operand transformation variants in technical processes. Such tool can be used by designers to consider different product realization possibilities based on existent technological principles in respect to customer needs, requirements and constraints. Engineering knowledge about the transformations and technological principles is formalized within a set of production rules. For computational implementation, it is proposed to use a double-pushout approach for graph grammar transformations.
