  abstract =     "Interactive grammar based design systems (IGBDS) are
                 capable of generating large numbers of alternative
                 designs. Prior to the application of IGBDS, a set of
                 rules should be defined based on the theoretical
                 theories and practical experiences in designing the
                 objects, or by analysing the existing sets of objects.
                 However, due to the time constraints in developing
                 theoretical theories, gaining the practical skills of
                 experts is of qualitative in nature and stylistically
                 inconsistent designs to be analysed, it is difficult to
                 systematically derive a set of shape grammar rules in
                 generating designs which fulfils specific requirements.
                 To address this problem, this paper presents an IGBDS
                 enhanced by evolutionary computing to evolve a set of
                 grammar rules for product form design. In this
                 research, the forms of a product are analysed to derive
                 shape features in the form of shape grammar (SG) rules.
                 The rules are then encoded as the code scripts of a
                 genetic algorithm (GA) representation in order to
                 generate new shape grammar rules. The parameters in GA
                 representation are modified by genetic programming (GP)
                 which is regulated by control planning strategies named
                 GP-GA-SG. The GP-GA-SG control planning strategy first
                 defines ways on how the control variables in GP should
                 modify the variables in GA representation. The GP-GA-SG
                 control planning strategy then defines ways on how the
                 control variables in GA should modify the variables in
                 SG representation. The SG rules modified by the GA
                 variables define a new combination of shape features
                 for alternative designs. In this way, traditional shape
                 grammar is extended to an interactive context in which
                 generative and evolutionary computing methods are
                 combined. Both product component design as well as
                 product configuration are supported in this framework.
                 In this paper, we describe how this framework is
                 formulated and discuss its potentials in supporting
                 product design, with initial examples showing how the
                 system is intended to work",
