Abstract

The use and exploitation of real-world knowledge by a knowledge-based (KB) database design tool was claimed capable of enhancing its performance in terms of processing efficiency, quality of designs produced and appearance of tool's intelligence. However, as to date, there have been no serious attempts made to evaluate these claims. This paper presents such an evaluation of one approach proposed to facilitate the system storage and exploitation of real-world knowledge; the thesaurus approach. Results obtained have demonstrated that with-in the scope of design synthesis, the claim for an increase in processing efficiency has been achieved. However, within the context of design diagnosis all the aforementioned claims have been met by the thesaurus approach.
