A Generalization of Computational Synthesis Methods in Engineering Design

Matthew I. Campbell and Rahul Rai

This paper presents a systematic way of thinking about computational synthesis methods in engineering design. By studying how various researchers present their work and through personal experiences, the authors have found that by dividing these problems into representation, generation, evaluation, and guidance challenges, one can more easily tackle difficult problems. This paper presents this division along with a brief literature review of papers that either implicitly or explicitly coheres to this division.
