Kockhar, Sandeep and Friedell, Mark (1990): User Control in Cooperative Computer-Aided Design. In: Hudson, Scott E. (ed.) Proceedings of the 3rd annual ACM SIGGRAPH symposium on User interface software and technology October 03 - 05, 1990, Snowbird, Utah, United States. pp. 143-151.

We address one of the major problems in design automation systems based on the state-space search paradigm -- that of combinatorial explosion when design rules are applied in an uncontrolled, undirected manner. Our main hypothesis is that it is both necessary and desirable for the user to control in several ways the automatic generation of designs. Cooperative computer-aided design (CCAD) is an interaction paradigm for design automation that serves as a framework for applying techniques that abate the growth in number of automatically generated design alternatives. We describe in detail specific mechanisms providing user control over the generative phases of CCAD, and we demonstrate these techniques in the context of FLATS -- a prototype CCAD system for the design of small architectural floor plans.
