Paper Abstract

This paper introduces the main techniques adopted by design flow management subsystem in the OOTIF Framework. OOTIF is an object oriented tool integrate CAD framework. In this paper, we present static model of design process based on flowchart; we implement tool control through tool template which makes use of object oriented concept; we develop design flowchart builder through which designers can express design intent when submitting tasks; knowledge base is built, which makes intelligent tool selection and flow management possible. Some ideas of future developments of OOTIF are also presented. With the help of design flow management system, designers are able to concentrate exclusively on those issues concerned with the creative and exploratory phases of design.
