Abstract : The Support Environment for Design And Review (SEDAR) System is an expert critiquing system for flat and low-slope roof design developed at the U.S. Army Construction Engineering Research Laboratories. SEDAR uses a task-based model of design for flexible control of its multi-strategy critiquing abilities. It is designed to support the existing design and review protocol for roof design for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. This report describes reusable components of SEDAR. The components are: the expert critiquing shell, the flat and low-slope roof design domain knowledge base, a set of two-dimensional geometric reasoning routines, and a set of AutoCAD functions for information display. Each component's structure is described in detail, and necessary modifications for effective reuse are discussed. The appendices to this report contain file specifications and an index of the functions, rules, and rule sets of SEDAR.
