Creative designer: What & how? (Intelligent support for problem formalisation in engineering design)

Engineering design is a kind of human activity that makes use of many different knowledge sources. Basically, this may be a well structured, explicit, and domain specific knowledge or tacit, implicit, and experience-based knowledge. Each type of knowledge has its particular role in design, and thus in knowledge-based design support systems. The aim of this document is to present a new view on the knowledge-based systems supporting design and designers especially in the early phases. Although the design support systems may be described and compared on many different levels, the knowledge-centred view in this document is emphasised by the three facets that describe the proposed approach: design knowledge representation, design process control, and analogous design cases retrieval and presentation.
