Abstract:This research focuses on the development of an architecture that supports group engineering activities by increasing the synergy between team members engaged in common product development activities. To this end, a computer-based architecture, formed by the unification of reasoning techniques, extensions of current object-oriented database technology, and a team coordination methodology has been developed. This architecture has been implemented as a system called the Intelligent Design Environment for Engineering Automation (IDEEA). For reasoning, IDEEA supports the development of rich product models that interleave declarative and procedural forms of knowledge and data within a seamless environment. Extending these techniques with database technologies and a team coordination methodology supports the collaborative utilization and evolution of product models within a single integrated framework.
