This report describes a computer based system called HeGeL which is developed to_calibrate and verify a model of problem structuring in the design process. Implemented as a production system, HeGeL simulates the design behaviors of humans observed during protocol experiments. This report discusses the representations used, flow of actions and the computing environment of HeGeL as well as the validity of the proposed design paradigm and the adequacy of methods used.
