Abstract:

The Technology Impact Report, prepared under a Phase II Small Business Innovation Research SBIR effort, documents key concepts of the Design Knowledge Management System DKMS as it impacts current design technology. A technology overview is given for the major DKMS components. The DKMS consists of components which can be used to streamline facets of the design process Container Object System a flexible means of storing computer objects and constraints, so that a design can easily evolve as information changes. Model Design Support Environment a method for automatic solution and code generation based on the problem, the givens, and the realworld equations that rule the environment. High-Productivity CAD a toolbox for CAD designers. Shape-based Design Knowledge Representation and Reasoning component which allows shape information as a key factor in the design. For example Does the shape of this part create unacceptable stress points Integration Platform component which helps user select and translate services.
