||Product family modelling in the construction industry
||Jørgensen K A
||In general, the demand for customised products has increased radically and, as a result, the need for definition and specification of products by configuration has become more important than ever. This development is also related to the construction industry, where there is a clear interest in configuration of products related to building modelling. In this paper, an overview is given about the relationships between building models and product models and a methodology is presented for developing product family models, which are suitable for generation of advanced product configurators. A model of this kind contains definitions of different types of attributes, product modules and product components. The behaviour of the model is defined as different types of constraints and an inference algorithm.
