Abstract

Conceptual design is a process of converting design requirements into an acceptable design solution. An object-oriented system for conceptual design is presented. The process of component synthesis is guided by production rules. An object-oriented programming paradigm is chosen since it simulates the designer's way of thinking during conceptual design. The system is implemented in Smalltalk-80 programming language and environment. Besides providing all the characteristics of an object-oriented language, Smalltalk-80 allows for development of highly user-friendly interfaces. The design synthesis process is presented using a graphical and textual description.
