An Interior Design Assistant (IDA)
is a tool to support an interior design architect.
When designing the interior of a house or building,
the architect proceeds from the spatial layout
and a list of furniture items.
IDA must allow for
placing furniture in a room.
It will check for constraints. For example
placing a chair upon a table will be prohibited.
For each design, IDA must be able to
give information with respect to pricing
and the time it takes to have the furniture
In addition to the design facilities, IDA must also
offer a showroom mode, in which
the various designs can be inspected and compared
with respect to price and delivery time.
