Section: DESIGN INFORMATION AND KNOWLEDGE
In the 1980ies and 1990ies design catalogues were developed as knowledge repository for engineering knowledge. Until now, approaches to devise computer aided design catalogues did not provide the desired results. In the present article the authors introduce a Framework for a computer-aided design catalogue that is combined with a knowledge-based-engineering-system. This is done based upon a discussion of synthesis tasks in engineering design and the over-all setup of KBE-Systems, Roth's design catalogues are systematically characterized as knowledge bases.
