ion mechanisms By definition, a model is an abstraction of reality. A.bstraction means leaving out details of information that are irrelevant for the context in which we look at reality. In order to acquire a more structured representation of reality, several mechanisms are used to enhance the abstraction of reality with concepts that derive from the way we think about reality. These abstraction mechanisms generally define relationships between types of objects. Three such relationships are… 
Towards dynamic information modelling in architectural design
TLDR
The paper describes and discusses three long-term, independent research projects that are being carried out in three European universities and shows strong similarities in terms of objectives, conceptual approach, and methodology.
From rough to final designs by incremental set-inclusion of properties
  • Eir
  • Computer Science
  • 2002
TLDR
The present paper elaborates on a property–oriented approach as a foundation for design tools facilitating incremental design based on set–inclusion of properties, and specifies requirements for tools facilitate incremental design and offering improved semantic support.

Object Version Control for Collaborative Design Characteristics of the concept-modelling framework
TLDR
The main characteristics of the concept- modelling framework that is developed in the DesKs project on Design Knowledge services, which implements object version control and uses timeline management of versions and revisions of objects to increase the integrity between objects that are accessed and edited across a network.

Communicating Concepts for Shared Understanding: A Multi-Agent Approach
TLDR
An approach that takes into account a more developmental attitude that will be better suited for design support and the sharing of design concepts is proposed, and design concepts are formalised by means of a technology called concept modelling.
A Sortal Building Model Supporting Interdisciplinary Design Communication
TLDR
This paper compares the process of constructing design views to a complex adaptive system, in which the design view is as much an outcome of as a means to the design communication process.
The object model at the core of the IDEA + design environment
TLDR
Three different aspects in which the IDEA+ core model differs from many other product modelling research initiatives are focused on: the systematic approach in the construction of the model, the respect for the evolutionary nature of architectural design, and the use of actual and complete design cases to test the model.
A feature ontology to support construction cost estimating
TLDR
The formal ontology developed to represent construction knowledge about the cost-driving features of building product models is presented and tests show that estimators are able to generate and maintain cost estimates more accurately, consistently, and expeditiously with feature-based product models than with industry standard product models.

A Features Framework for Architectural Information
TLDR
The paper reviews the way information is dealt with in design and describes this as the dynamic nature of design, which leads to the notion that an information model should evolve along with the development of a design.
Generic representations : an approach for modelling procedural and declarative knowledge of building types in architectural design
TLDR
The research work at hand proposes to investigate the role of knowledge associated with building types in the design process, and proposes to use graphic representations as a medium to encode knowledge of the building type.
Architectural Design-by-Features
TLDR
This paper focuses on this aspect of CAAD: the support of design tasks with dynamic, flexible information modelling techniques, and proposes a prototype Feature-based Modelling Shell based on this framework.
Information modelling for design support : a feature-based approach
TLDR
The research involves the development of a pilot-system for the computational support of this Dynamic Information-Modelling approach, which proposes a classification of Feature Types, as well as an infrastructure that accommodates the definition and particularization of Features Types.
A feature based approach to modelling architectural information
TLDR
The research presented in this paper investigates the approach developed in the field of Mechanical Engineering on Feature Based Modelling, which offers the formalisation of design information in a flexible manner that allows designers to change and extend the information model according to their needs.
Features and Constraints in Architectural Design
The concepts of the experimental design system that are discussed are feature modeling and geometrical constraints. The main technique for creating the user environment is Virtual Reality. Feature
Design and Modelling in a Computer Integrated Construction Process — The BAS•CAAD Project
TLDR
How product design and modelling can be based on a ‘facetted’ approach to information modelling, and how a data model that supports the design process can bebased on a framework for system information is discussed.
