Changes in market and production profiles require a more flexible concept of manufacturing. Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM) describes an integrative concept for joining business and manufacturing islands. In this context database technology is the key technology for implementing the CIM philosophy. However, CIM applications are more complex and thus, more demanding than traditional database applications like business and administrative applications. In this chapter we systematically… 
Migration in object‐oriented database systems—A practical approach
The paper describes a framework for the migration of object‐oriented database applications based on a detailed analysis of the involved database systems, of the application's database requirements, and of the resources available for the database migration.
Evaluation of Object-Oriented Database Systems
This chapter surveys existing performance benchmarks for OODBS and discusses an extensive evaluation catalogue for advanced database systems which has been developed during the course of a real-world project.
Management of Data Model Evolution in Object-Oriented Database Systems
This paper introduces a framework for handling evolution at the data model level based on database migration by means of migrating a production planning and control system from the objectoriented database system ONTOS to ObjectStore*.
Investigation of PVM for the emulation and simulation of a distributed CIM workflow system
The objective of this paper is to apply the PVM software for emulating and simulating a distributed CIM workflow system, thereby evaluating the performance of the design factors of the C IM workflow system.
The exploration of a category theory-based virtual geometrical product specification system for design and manufacturing
The presented thesis introduced an innovative knowledge-based system − the VirtualGPS − that provides an integrated GPS knowledge platform based on a stable and efficient database structure with knowledge generation and accessing facilities that focuses on solving the intrinsic product design and production problems by acting as a virtual domain expert.
Distributed manufacturing under pandemic conditions
The thriving globalization conditions fostered the emergence of distributed manufacturing over the past decades, covering almost all of the industries, regions, and economies. The international and
The Integrated Deductive Approach (IDA) is presented, which constitutes an integral part of the database system itself by making use of the declarative power of deductive databases, and proposes an extension to Categorial Unification Grammar in order to analyse free word order languages efficiently.


Heterogeneous distributed database systems for production use
This paper outlines approaches to various aspects of heterogeneous distributed data management and describes the characteristics and architectures of seven existingheterogeneous distributed database systems developed for production use.
The emerging STEP standard for product-model data exchange
The International Organization for Standardization's (ISO's) standard for the exchange of product-model data (STEP) is discussed, which will make it easier to integrate systems that perform various product life-cycle functions, such as design, manufacturing, and logistics support, and will help facilitate concurrent engineering.
Extending data modeling to cover the whole enterprise
It is shown that EDMs can differ in level of detail, and the purpose of EDM is discussed on each level, and a method for the design of EDMs is proposed and implications for data model-ing methods are outlined.
Toward a unified framework for version modeling in engineering databases
This work provides a common terminology and collection of mechanisms that underlie any approach for representing engineering design information in a database, and proposes a single framework, based on these mechanisms, which can be tailored for the needs of a given version environment.
Integration framework for intelligent manufacturing processes
A new approach to applying distributed artificial intelligence techniques to manufacturing processes is described which can serve as a universal configuration to develop high performance intelligent systems for many complicated industrial applications in real world domains.
Object Data Management: Object-Oriented and Extended
Any database system user interested in the latest technologies, particularly users with large amounts of complex data to manage, as well as students, designers, and implementors of much systems, will find this book packed with useful information for their particular needs.
Object operations benchmark
This paper provides a careful specification of the OO1 benchmark, shows how it can be implemented on database systems, and presents evidence that more than an order of magnitude difference in performance can result from a DBMS implementation quite different from current products.
Fundamentals of Database Systems
From the Publisher: Fundamentals of Database Systems combines clear explanations of theory and design, broad coverage of models and real systems, and excellent examples with up-to-date introductions
Modeling and Managing CAD Databases
The management of data created in the computer-aided design of objects, and assemblies ofObjects, with regard to the iterative, tentative, and multistage nature of the design process is concerned.
Semantics and implementation of schema evolution in object-oriented databases
A framework for supporting schema evolution is established, the semantics of schema evolution are defined, and the implementation of the implementation is discussed.
