Design is a intricate task as it involves an intuitive component. Moreover, in most cases, there are constraints governed by aspects such as function, behavior of materials, manufacturing processes, or production cost. These constraints limit the design space, but those limits may be difficult to identify by a designer. In order to support intuitive and effective design space navigation by a designer, from schematic to detailed design, we investigate multi-criteria optimization, visual computing, and information modeling methods.
