The manmachine integrative systems could work well, but it seems that in most of the integrated systems today, and in the commercial ones in particular, there is no route to any appraisal technique of the layout problem. Without any evaluation techniques in commercial integrated systems it seems that the geometrical database exists just to create working drawings and sometimes also perspectives. A few questions arise here: are the integrated systems more advanced than the automatically generating ones (as the people of the integrated systems generation think)?

The creation of different alternative design layouts to the same problem. As a consequence, a better suboptimum can also be achieved, as is the case with the systematic interchange technique. The output obtained by the computer is not the final layout. It is only a good hierarchical decomposition of the complete layout into the desired number of floors. Also it can serve as a very advanced schematic design of each floor. From this stage the architect can go on and design the building manually. The use of this model enables him to start with a good functional layout and concentrate on the design.
