Summary:
The project that was created for this thesis is a Case Based Reasoning application to be used in high level software design for Siemens' Telecommunications software. Currently, design engineers search for existing subtasks in the software that are similar to subtasks in their new designs by reading documentation and consulting with other engineers. The prototype for Software Design Using Case Based Reasoning (SDUCBR) stores these subtasks in a case library and enables the design engineer to locate relevant subtasks via three different indexing techniques. This thesis addresses knowledge representation and indexing mechanisms appropriate for this application. SDUCBR is domain-dependent. Cases are stored in a relational hierarchy to facilitate analyzing the existing implementation from various perspectives. The indexing mechanisms were designed to provide the software design engineer with the flexibility of describing a problem differently based on the objective, level of granularity, and special characteristics of the subtask.
