Integrating structural design and analysis through product modelling

Abstract: Application of information technology in the realisation of concurrent engineering is essential (although not sufficient by itself. A research issue in the realisation of computer supported concurrent engineering is the sharing of information between computer applications. This sharing can be achieved with product models . In the structural engineering process, two kinds of information sharing can be distinguished: the sharing with other disciplines and the sharing within the discipline (between structural design and analysis). These two kinds of sharing require two kinds of product models: a model to integrate disciplines (a kernel model) and a model to integrate activities within the discipline (a discipline view model). This paper describes a kernel model for the integration of disciplines in the building process and a view model for the integration of the activities in the structural engineering process.
