Abstract

Supporting decision making in building design concerns the interaction of many parameters in a wide scope complex environment. We have to handle many parameters from different disciplines that have different characteristics and act in different ways on the decisions. In the paper a building design decision support environment is described that meets the complexity of the design process. Different approaches from architectural and decision support system viewpoints have been integrated into one general framework for building design decision support systems that forms a consistent basis for working on generic system architectures for building design DSS. 1 Introduction Complex decision processes occur in various branches of engineering, in particular
