Abstract

Examines the feasibility of utilizing fuzzy associative memory (FAM) in conceptual design and illustrates the concept by applying it to the idea generation phase of a design activity. The mapping of fuzzy functional requirements to physical design is examined. Trigger and conflict-resolution strategies are proposed to solve the vectors association problem in a multi-FAM environment. Experiments show an extremely high rate of accuracy in retrieving fuzzy information. The simplicity of its practical implementation makes this paradigm computationally attractive for this application.
