Abstract: This paper aims at stressing the importance of the goal of modeling in identifying the underlying bodies of knowledge. It briefly describes the progression in complexity of modeling and the most suitable methodologies to build computer systems to support various domain problems. It then presents the factors behind the brittleness of traditional knowledge-based modeling and development. The paper concludes with a discussion of the case of concurrent engineering through two different models that can support concurrent Architecture/Engineering/Construction tasks in various degrees of success.
