Some key issues in supporting collaborative design in product data management(PDM) system and 3D computer aided design(CAD) system integrated environment are analyzed. The general architecture of the integrated environment is divided into five tiers and employs the transparently integrated mode, with the mode, function calling and information exchanging among independent PDM and CAD processes are carried out via message translation/parse approach. Product layout feature(PLF) model definition is… CONTINUE READING
