Parametric design systems model a design as a constrained collection of schemata. Designers work in such systems at two levels: definition of schemata and constraints; and search within a schema collection for meaningful instances. Propagation-based systems yield efficient algorithms that are complete within their domain, require explicit specification of a(More)
Nowadays, numerous Computer-aided Design (CAD) software packages support Building Information Modeling (BIM). BIM software can benefit of advanced simulation in the pre-design phase of construction projects. In this case, we show focus on models of the emergency evacuation regarding the security and safety. We analyze the evacuation simulation of a model(More)
Building Information Modeling (BIM) and its open standard Industry Foundation Classes (IFC) are becoming popular in the design phase in the Architecture and Construction industry. Here, we focus on integrating BIM and DEVS (Discrete Event systems Specification) simulation of occupancy analysis. We present a case study for Copenhagen's New Elephant House,(More)
SEED is an acronym for Software Environment to Support the Early Phases in Building Design. The overall architecture of SEED is based on a division of the preliminary design process into phases, each of which addresses a specific task. SEED intends to support each phase by an individual support module based on a shared logic and architecture. The modules(More)
