Understanding Design Through Design Support Tools DRN2005 Bauke de Vries, Henri Achten, Jos van Leeuwen
Content Developments of DS group Results in 2000-2005 Design support: Interfaces Decision support: Bayesian networks JANUS Retrospective and Prospective
CAAD research Development of innovative design systems From explorative: How can we improve design support? To deductive: How well does the system perform?
Research Programme Past: VR-DIS (Virtual Reality – Design Information System) Present: DDSS (Design and Decision Support Systems)

DS research Design support: Interfaces Decision support: Bayesian networks
Design support: Interfaces Design system classification: 1.Specificity to the architectural domain 2.Versatility of provided support
BN findings 1.Differences between the BN predictions and real-life selections decreased 2.Increase of the number of accepted suggestions provided by the BN
Joint Architectural Network for Urban Synergy (JANUS) Public-Private collaboration Focus on what should be communicated instead of how Participants: Architects, Contractors, Principal, Governmental institutes
Projects Digital Dormer Digital code checking Inline building permits..
Retrospective and Prospective DS = between CS – SS Experimental results are often not glamorous Designers are incapable of specifying their own needs
