What goes into a Generative Design Process?

Stages

As previously discussed, a generative design approach allows for a more integrated workflow between human and computer.
In Generative Design, this workflow involves the following stages: generate, analyze, rank, evolve, explore, and integrate.

Generate

The design options are created or generated by the system, using algorithms and parameters specified by the designer.

Analyze

The designs generated in the previous step are now measured or analyzed based on how well they achieve goals defined by the designer.

Rank

The design options are ordered or ranked based on the results of the analysis.

Evolve

The process ranks the design options to figure out in which direction they should be further developed or evolved.

Explore

The designer compares and explores the generated designs, inspecting both the geometry and evaluation results.

Integrate

The designer chooses a favorite design option and integrates it into the wider project or design work.
