  abstract =     "The two critical issues related to product design
                 exploration are addressed: the balance between
                 stylistic consistency and innovation, and the control
                 of design process under a great diversity of
                 requirements. To address these two issues, the view of
                 understanding product design exploration is first
                 sought. In this view, the exploration of designs is not
                 only categorized as a problem-solving activity but also
                 as a problem-finding activity. A computational
                 framework is developed based on this view, and it
                 encompasses the belief that these two activities go
                 hand in hand to accomplish the design tasks in an
                 interactive design environment. The framework adopts an
                 integration approach of two key computational
                 techniques, shape grammars and evolutionary computing,
                 for addressing the above two critical issues. For the
                 issues of stylistic consistency, this paper focuses on
                 the computational techniques in balancing the conflicts
                 of stylistic consistency and innovation with shape
                 grammars. For the issues of controlling design process,
                 the practical concerns of monitoring the design process
                 through various activities starting from the
                 preparation works to the implementation of shape
                 grammars have been emphasized in the development of
                 this framework. To evaluate the effectiveness of the
                 framework, the experiments have been set up to reflect
                 the practical situations with which the designers have
                 to deal. The system generates a number of models from
                 scratch with numerical analysis that can be evaluated
                 effectively by the designers. This reduces the
                 designers' time and allows the designers to concentrate
                 their efforts on performing higher level of design
                 activities such as evaluation of designs and making
                 design decisions.",
