Parametric Design Problem Solving

The aim of this paper is to understand what is involved in parametric design problem solving. In order to achieve this goal, in this paper i) we identify and detail the conceptual elements defining a parametric design task specification; ii) we illustrate how these elements are interpreted and operationalised during the design process; and iii) we formulate a generic model of parametric design problem solving. We then re-describe a number of problem solving methods in terms of the proposed generic model and we show that such a re-description enables us to provide a more precise account of the different competence behaviours expressed by the methods in question.
