Dependency-directed backtracking was proposed by Sussman [Stallman 77] as one approach to this problem. Mittal [Mittal 86] uses a variation on dependency tracking for modification of designs on failure. • What to do under different kinds of failures may be available as explicit domain knowledge in routine design problems. This information can be attached to the design plans. The work to be described in later chapters uses this highly compiled form. (4): Design by Constraint Processes. For some design problems a process of simultaneous constraint satisfaction by constraint propagation can be employed.

A task item is a step or a constraint (Figure 6). To handle errors that arise 5 We will use angled brackets to delimit plans, and semicolons to separate plan items. 6 Unfortunately the word "task" here does not have much in common with the word in the phrase ■generic tasks" introduced in Chapter 1. It is a technical term that describes a part of design plan. 41 during execution of the task items, the task has Failure Handlers and a Redesigner. The task can also have a collection of suggestions that are also used during failure recovery.

At present, there is no difference in the theory between a task or step in the design phase as opposed to the rough-design phase. However, as rough-design becomes better understood we expect that steps will be able to produce truly "rough" values and that steps and tasks will have simplified failure handling abilities. Specialists too may be able to be simplified. 3 Design Once rough-design is completed satisfactorily, the design phase can proceed. Design starts with the topmost specialist and works down to the lowest levels of the hierarchy.
