Abstract:

The use of Computer Aided Design CAD technology in the U.S. Navy and Marine industry has evolved from a drafting based design tool to a 3-Dimensional3D product oriented information base, used for design, production and service lift support. One of the most significant enhancements to current CAD technology has been the incorporation or integration of non-graphic attribute information with traditional graphics data. This expanded information base or product model has enabled the marine industry to expand CAD use to include such activities as engineering analysis, production control, and logistics support. While significant savings can be achieved through the exchange of digital product model data between different agents. current graphics based CAD data exchange standards do not support this expanded information content.
