Abstract: Current electronic design evaluators employ one of three primary computational models to represent a design standard: the Condition/Consequent, Object-Oriented and hybrid models. The problems associated with these three types of models are discussed and then the Context-Oriented Model is introduced as an extension of these models. Through an example from the 1993 BOCA National Building Code, the Context-Oriented Model is illustrated as to how it can be used to represent and process a design standard.
