In concurrent engineering, the integration of the designers' knowledge and experience, and computer technology into the design process is very important to improve design quality and production efficiency. A feasible design alternative that follows the design rules for assembly will make product manufacturing and assembly more successful. However, designers(More)
The anomalies in normal forms generally can be reduced by decomposing relations. Unfortunately many current decomposition procedures fail to give lossless decomposition and still preserve all functional dependencies. A pegging method is proposed to solve this decomposition problem. Pegging is also helpful in decomposing relations that have the(More)
