Abstract

Despite the potential offered by reuse of information from previous projects in ongoing design workfor greater cost-effectiveness and innovation, it is beset by problems, which are not resolved by existing design documentation approaches. We describe Desperado, an indexing system that adopts a novel approach to supporting design reuse. Desperado offers three concurrent facilities — component encoding, rationale capture and guided retrieval — within a single environment. Each facility is supported by a system-initiated search of an objectoriented database of previous design episodes.
