Database technology has been successfully applied to the traditional data processing environment where data are represented by well-formatted records. here is a growing interest in extending this database technology to more advanced application environments such as VLSI CADCAM, cartography, etc., where data are less structured and have very complex semantics. In this paper, we describe the data interactions in the design and manufacturing phases which are necessary to integrate the two phases automatically. These data requirements are part of an integrated information support system eared towards the make to order design and manufacturing process. An expert system translator to carry out the integration is described and demonstrated in an example. An overall goal of our research is to develop a completely integrated information support system for generic design and manufacturing processes.
