Interest in database support for engineering appli~tions is rapidly growing. In this paper we concentrate on conceptual database design and address the question of what a semantic model shotdd look like, that meets the needs of engineering applications and is sufficiently formal to support validation, optimization, analysis, as well as transformation to an implementation schema. We present several case studies of engineering databases in order to determine major modelling requirements, and… CONTINUE READING
