In this paper, the philosophy of case prototype based design is proposed. The system architecture of CascDEST which is an embodiment of this philosophy are presented in the paper, also an algorithm of neural network based analogical case retrieval and a strategy of constraint networks based object scheme evaluation and modification are described in details. Finally, an application of CascDEST in three series industrial steam turbine design is presented.
