conformance architecture

In an earlier paper an architecture was described for supporting code conformance
applications based on Kea, an object-oriented functional language. Here we describe
a prototype application, developed using Kea, for checking conformance with a
thermal insulation standard. Called ThermalDesigner, this application incorporates an
object-oriented building model, a graphical plan entry system for editing plans, and
form-based interaction for obtaining non-plan information and supplying results to
the user.
1 Introduction
In Hosking et al (1991), an architecture was proposed for developing code of practice
conformance applications. This architecture includes the following components:
An object-oriented building model
A functional representation of code provisions which are embedded
within the object-oriented building model
A CAD-like drafting front end to allow users to enter plan details
