This paper presents a prototype of intelligent advisory system based on the aesthetic factors regarding product design, with the emphasis on appurtenant design recommendations. Aesthetics certainly belong to the more complex design factors. Although some literature can be found about the aesthetic design of consumer goods, the designer still has to amass quite a lot of experience and knowledge in the field of aesthetics, in order to choose and carry out appropriate design actions for improving the aesthetic value of the product. The aim of the paper is not to discuss aesthetics from philosophical point of view, but to present problematic of aesthetics trough eyes of the mechanical design engineer, who is responsible for outer shape of the product already in conceptual design phase, where various influential factors determine the design.

During the process of defining suitable design solutions, a designer has to consider a wide range of influential factors. Ergonomics certainly belongs to more complex ones. Less experienced designers could encounter several problems during this design stage. Although some literature can be found about ergonomic design of hand tools, a designer still has to have amassed quite a lot of experience and knowledge in the field of ergonomic, in order to choose and carry out appropriate design and redes...

It is hard to imagine a modern design process without using a computer. Adding the intelligence to the existing computer aids, leads to significant improvements of the effectiveness at performing various engineering tasks, including design. This is even m

This book addresses the question of how far it is possible to go in knowledge representation and reasoning by representing knowledge with graphs (in the graph theory sense) and reasoning with graph operations. The authors have carefully structured the book with the first part covering basic conceptual graphs, the second developing the computational aspects, and the final section pooling the kernel extensions. An appendix summarizes the basic mathematical notions. This is the first book to provid...

The relationship between how designers intend products to be interpreted and how they are subsequently interpreted has often been represented as a process of communication. However, such representations are attacked for allegedly implying that designers' intended meanings are somehow ‘contained’ in products and that those meanings are passively received by consumers. Instead, critics argue that consumers actively construct their own meanings as they engage with products, and therefore that desig...

We study a new, fractal-based model of pathfinding aesthetics for videogames and other virtual worlds. This model fills a gap in previous pathfinding efforts that have studied mostly machine performance issues or relied on anecdotal arguments rather than metrics to hypothesize about and improve aesthetic outcomes. We show firstly that the fractal model consistently discriminates between paths that were generated with beautifying treatments versus control paths. We also report that the model reli...

One of the key elements of e-commerce systems is the online product catalog. It provides sellers with a content management system that assembles, aggregates, normalizes, and distributes product information. It also provides potential buyers with an interactive interface that offers a multimedia representation of the product information as well as retrieval, classification and ordering services. In this paper, we discuss the interface aspect of online product catalogs, focusing on its ability to ...
