Professional Decision Support Clients and Instructional Knowledge Based Servers

By G.Vasquez de de la Puente and A.H. MendIvil


The paper sets its focus on the problem of supporting the decision making process of the architect by means of Knowledge Based Systems that tend to concentrate on narrow domains of knowledge and fail to support global domain integration in our path towards an architectural synthesis. In response to this concern, the paper recognises the theoretical soundness of Integrated Decision Support Systems that seek the articulation of diversified knowledge based resources in pursue of achieving integral design support, but at the same time, the paper needs to acknowledge the multiple factors that have limited their wide spread development, in particular: lack of true commercial interest and a related absence of relevant authorship. From a conceptual and a commercial perspective, the paper transfers the traditional development scenario of our Integrated Decision Support Systems, and their array of knowledge based resources, into the market place of worldwide networks where Integrated Decision Support Platforms may perform as professional high-end clients and Knowledge Based Systems may be clustered within multimedia instructional servers. The paper ends by making reference to the positive reaction of a given group of practising architects that were recently exposed to a simulation of the intelligent front-end of a professional decision support client
