Abstract: We seek to improve the conceptual design process for complex artifacts such as buildings by offering designers access, through an on-line hypermedia library, to documentation and evaluations of existing projects. We have constructed Archie-II, a prototype of such a Case-Based Design Aid (CBDA) for use by architects. After several iterations, we are now nearing our first field trials of Archie-II; students in the Georgia Institute of Technology's College of Architecture will use the system in studio classes. This paper discusses our experiences preparing for these trials, emphasizing lessons learned about building CBDAs.
