Property-Oriented Information Systems for Design Prototypes for the BAS•CAAD system

Fridqvist, Sverker LU (2000)
Abstract (Swedish)
Popular Abstract in Swedish

Egenskapsorienterade system (eng: property-oriented) är en ny slags informationssystem som är baserade på begrepp för egenskaper istället för begrepp för ting eller klasser av ting. Genom att fokusera på egenskaper, kan de egenskapsorinterade systemen göras mer flexibla och mer lämpade för de tidiga skedena av design än de traditionella klassorienterade systemen kan vara.



Det teoretiska ramverk för egenskapsorienterade system som uvecklats inom BAS*CAAD-projektet och som presenteras i denna avhandling, har tidigare presenterats i ett flertal uppsatser av vilka ett urval finns inkluderade i denna avhandling. Några av de grundläggande tankegångarna från uppsatserna utvecklas... (More)

Det teoretiska ramverk för egenskapsorienterade system som uvecklats inom BAS*CAAD-projektet och som presenteras i denna avhandling, har tidigare presenterats i ett flertal uppsatser av vilka ett urval finns inkluderade i denna avhandling. Några av de grundläggande tankegångarna från uppsatserna utvecklas vidare i ett särskilt kapitel.



Dessutom avhandlas ett antal frågeställningar som berör förutsättningar för och följder av egenskapsorienterade system. Dessa frågeställningar har inte berörts i tidigare publikationer från BAS*CAAD-projektet.



Utvecklingen av programprototyper baserade på det teoretiska ramverket presenteras tillsammans med en diskussion över de olika versionerna och bevekelsegrunderna för dem.



Ett historiskt studium av datorstödd byggnadsutformning visar att många grundläggande ideer som används idag togs fram för första gången redan under datorns barndom, under det tidiga 1960-talet. Eftersom den tidiga utvecklingen förefaller okänd idag, presenteras en kort redogörelse i denna avhandling, med speciell inriktning på problem som behandlats i BAS*CAAD-projektet.



Slutligen presenteras i denna avhandling för första gången i skrift det för arkitekter avsedda designprogrammet DASK, som utvecklades under senare delen av 1980-talet, huvudsakligen av författaren. (Less)
Abstract
Property-oriented systems are a new kind of information systems that are based on concepts of properties instead of concepts of things or classes of things. By focusing on properties, the property-oriented systems become more flexible and more suited to the dynamic early stages of design than the traditional class-oriented systems can be.



The theoretical framework for property-oriented systems developed within the BAS*CAAD project and presented in this thesis has previously been presented in several papers, a selection of which are included here. Some of the basic considerations from the papers are further developed in a separate chapter.



Additionally, the thesis covers several questions regarding... (More)

Some of the basic considerations from the papers are further developed in a separate chapter.



Additionally, the thesis covers several questions regarding prerequisites for and implications of property-oriented systems. These questions have not been addressed in earlier BAS*CAAD publications.



The development of research proptotypes based on the theoretical framework is presented, with a discussion of the different versions and the considerations behind them.



A study of the history of computer aided building design has revealed that many basic ideas of today were developed the first time at the beginning of electronic computing, in the early sixties. Since the early development seems to be unknown today, a brief account is presented in this thesis, with special focus on issues considered in the BAS*CAAD project.



Finally, the experimental architectural design software DASK, developed mainly by the present author in the later 1980s, will get its first presentation in writing in this thesis. (Less)
