Abstract
The two purposes of this contract were to extend the basic functionality of LOCATE and to add support users in intelligent ways in their attempts to analyse their designs. Adding intelligence in LOCATE...Prior Work on intelilgent analysis...Adding intelligence through tracking user actions...Building explicit models to add in-depth understanding to support intelligent aiding in analysing LOCATE designs. Adding a quantitative optimiser...Making the optimiser intelligent...Future work is discussed that could make LOCATE an exemplary tool for workspace design and a model for other, similar development efforts at DCIEM. That work would involve extending LOCATE's intelligent aiding capabilities.
