Abstract

Design grammars have been successfully applied in numerous engineering disciplines, however, the lack of support for grammar development is seen as one of the major drawbacks of grammatical approaches in Computational Design Synthesis (CDS). In this paper, a method is presented that supports the development and application of design grammars. Concepts from compiler design and transition graphs are used to help designers understand developed grammars in depth. The grammar designer is given feedback on a) the rules, e.g., if there are redundant or do-undo rules, and b) rule application sequences, e.g., which sequences should be preferred or avoided. This feedback can be used to a) improve the grammar, and b) apply it more efficiently. The case study demonstrates how the method is used to analyze a grammar for a sliding tile puzzle. Knowledge learnt on small scale was then successfully applied to solve a larger scale problem. The results show the feasibility of the method and its generality is discussed.
