Knowledge-intensive design support: An enquiry into the role of the ontologies and analogous thinking in design support

This literature review builds a base for the further research of knowledge-intensive approach for the design problem formalisation. Engineering design is in general a complex activity; therefore, the document will focus on one specific part of the design process, namely the problem formalisation. The review discusses the following points: (i) various approaches to design and nature of design tasks; (ii) knowledge modelling research and its place in design support; and (iii) implications drawn from the nature of design tasks and knowledge modelling toward intelligent design support.
