Concepts are proposed to improve the computer support in the (re)design of mechanical products. These concepts are combined with a proposal for an improved link between CAD and CAPP systems. The concepts resulted from a methodic design approach aiming at the design of a re-design support system. Findings from literature, previously conducted research and an object oriented design approach have been taken into account. The concepts incorporate a mixed top-down/bottom-up design strategy. The… CONTINUE READING
