Analogy by Abstraction: A Theory of Case Retrieval and Adaptation in Inventive Design Problems

Takashi Ishikawa and Takao Terano

This paper examines the applicability of Case Bases Reasoning for inventive design problems and proposes a new reasoning scheme: Analogy by Abstraction (ABA). "Inventive design", in this paper, means designing a new thing based on past similar experience, in which we force to find some similarities on the new designed object.
