Modèles et outils pour l'assistance à la conception. Application à la conception architecturale

Abstract : Abstract : Design assistance and more particularly Architectural design assistance offer a rich potential of applications for
many research themes in computer science. The work, presented in this report, concerns several of these themes.
At first, we present the general context of a design activity: the object, the process and actors. Then, we put our
interest in the problem of modelling the design object during the design process and of taking into account of
their evolution in a data model. The experiments realized in this study made it possible to highlight the limits of
the object models to represent evolutive objects. By regarding the hypermedia approach as a flexible support for
organization and information retrieval, which is adapted to the process of design, we present a design method of
hypermedia allowing the user-designer to organize his field of competences in order to propose it to other
designers. We illustrate the use of this method and highlight its limits with the presentation of some
implementation examples. After having formulated the remark that the image occupies an important place in the
architectural design, we present different uses in design assistance: technical information retrieval by image, the
technological survey by image and the reference retrieval by image. The experiments realized allow us to
consider some extensions about the method used and about the fields of investigation considered. Finally, in
order to assist specific activities of design, which can be collective, and by considering the specificity of the
activity of design, we propose, in the form of a meta-model, a representation of the cooperation context as well
as a visualization of this context adapted to the visual representation of the architect. All these approaches were
the subject of applications and experiments by implementing lastest information technologies.
