039 - A Computer-Aided Script Generator for Computer Aided Design


Integration is a key issue in Computer-Aided Design. It should be possible to combine the information generated by the different designers in a convenient manner. In a recent paper we have discussed a multi-agent computational model within which we propose to coordinate the activities of the design agents in a concurrent engineering design environment [ABCY94]. Our agent-oriented computational model is represented using definition-based (or definitive) scripts. This paper focuses on how information produced at the drafting stage can be integrated into the later stages of the design process. We describe a two-view computer-aided script generator that allows us to draft a drawing via a graphical user-interface and to edit its associated textual description as a definitive script. This generator is itself implemented in our multi-agent computational model.
