This paper describes an exploratory study of naive and expert users of computer-aided design (CAD) systems. The objective of the investigation was to elicit the structure of declarative knowledge for users of differening degrees of CAD experience. Users were required to arrange concepts (from the knowledge domain of CAD and engineering) whilst 'thinking aloud'. Results were analysed using the Pathfinder algorithm and cluster analysis.
