Intelligent design tools as product model interfaces

Abstract: Concurrent engineering is understood as a methodology that can be used to increase quality and reduce design effort and time-to-market of a product. Main aspects of concurrent engineering are information sharing among multiple design agents and problem solving actions. Associated techniques are product models and intelligent design tools. In the paper the interrelationship of product modelling technology and intelligent design support is reviewed. A practical contribution to concurrent engineering by using design tools as intelligent interfaces to product models has been done by the authors. The paper describes the concept and prototypic implementation of two knowledge-based design tools in the domain of structural design. The tools form integrated parts of a design environment linked via a central product model.
