Design of a Feature-based Multi-viewpoint Design Automation System

  title={Design of a Feature-based Multi-viewpoint Design Automation System},
  author={Kwang-Hoon Lee and Chris A. McMahon and Kwan Hyeong Lee},
Viewpoint-dependent feature-based modelling in computer-aided design is developed for the purposes of supporting engineering design representation and automation. The approach of this paper uses a combination of a multi-level modelling approach. This has two stages of mapping between models, and the multi-level model approach is implemented in three-level architecture. Top of this level is a feature-based description for each viewpoint, comprising a combination of form features an d other… Expand
Ontology-Driven Semantic Annotations for Multiple Engineering Viewpoints in Computer Aided Design
This research will argue that it is possible to take a generalised approach to annotation with formal annotation content structures and anchoring mechanisms described using general-purpose ontologies, and may readily be captured, represented and incorporated into PLM systems together with existing annotations in a common framework.

Characteristics of a Multi-Viewpoint Feature-Based Design Automation Environment
This paper describes an approach to viewpoint-dependent feature-based modelling in computer-aided design developed for the purposes of supporting design automation. The approach uses a combination ofExpand
Product Development with Multiple-View Feature Modelling
A new approach to multiple-view feature modelling is presented here that overcomes shortcomings of current approaches and supports conceptual design, assembly design, part detail design and part manufacturing planning, by providing a view for each of them. Expand
A shape modelling applications programming interface for the STEP standard
Current work on extending the standard to enable the capture and transfer of parametrized CAD models with geometric constraints, a capability not provided in the initial release is reported on. Expand
Exchange of CAD Part Models Based on the Macro-Parametric Approach
It is not possible to exchange parametric information of CAD models based on the current version of STEP. The design intent can be lost during the STEP transfer of CAD models. The Parametrics GroupExpand
Feature-based design in a distributed and collaborative environment
Abstract In this paper, a client/server framework has been developed to enable a dispersed team to accomplish a feature-based design task collaboratively. A manipulation client+modelling serverExpand
A distributed heterogeneous computing environment for multidisciplinary design and analysis of aerospace vehicles
Abstract A framework for rapid applications development is described that implements an object-oriented computational environment in which the Common Object Request Broker Architecture and the JavaExpand
Parametric and Feature-Based CAD/CAM: Concepts, Techniques, and Applications
The authors provide comprehensive coverage of all topics related to features--from fundamental concepts to applications including numerous specific techniques, algorithms, data structures plus a program code which implementers will find useful. Expand
Automatic propagation of feature modification across domains
A new algorithm has been developed to propagate feature modification automatically across different task domains, such as machining, analysis and modelling, resulting in efficient propagation of the modification. Expand
Feature-Based Collaborative Design
The working style of collaborative design and the approach to define, classify features and create relationship of features in the system are briefly introduced and the structure of feature based collaborative design system is presented. Expand
NetBuilder: an environment for integrating tools and people
A software system called NetBuilder is described that provides a mechanism for coordinating collaborative activities in a distributed work environment and support for `wrapping' of individual legacy systems so that they can be invoked as part of megaprograms in a uniform manner. Expand
