In this paper, the search of conceptual software design space by multi-objective genetic operators is evaluated against two industrial sized case studies. In both case studies, useful, interesting and novel design solution variants of equivalent or superior fitness to human-performed design are achieved. This suggests that multi-objective evolutionary search techniques show great promise as an original and robust basis for interactive, computationally intelligent conceptual software design support tools.
