Abstract : It is increasingly being recognized that an Engineering Information System will be the fundamental component of any design and manufacturing system in the future and that all components in such a system have to be engineered around the management and control of information. Commercially available database systems do not meet the information and processing needs of design and manufacturing environments, consequently, extensions of database systems are necessary to realize Engineering Information Systems. These systems will support multimedia databases of significant size and complexity and, therefore, one of the most important issues is performance. Addressed in this project were the computational and architectural aspects of EIS and rule management techniques for maintaining consistency. The studies produced promising models and solutions.
