Abstract:
A design system that accepts multiple performance criteria faces the problem of trading off one criterion for another. Understanding the user's preference about such tradeoffs is essential to producing the most desirable design. An argument is made against specifying preferences over all possibilities before the design process begins. The propose solution reduces its dependence on the specification's accuracy by encouraging interaction between the user and the system. The system produces quick, high quality information about realizable designs and performance tradeoffs between them.
