The diversity in software used to support collaborative design and concurrent engineering requires the implementation of new technologies in order to ensure the integration between the various activities of the product development process. Most of the time, companies can not afford to spend the time and the funds required to enhance their IT and software resources. This is often the case of small and medium companies. Nowadays, in mechanical design, the needs for product data sharing between…

An intelligent system based on concurrent engineering for innovative product design at the conceptual design stage
TLDR
The development of an intelligent system based on concurrent engineering for generating design alternatives at the conceptual design stage that has the capability for design alternatives evaluation, material selection and modelling the product detailed design on the computer-aided design system is described.
Web-based Collaboration Systems for Structural Design: A Review
In a construction project, collaboration amongst the project participants is a critical factor for high-quality results and successful completion of the project. Owing to the advance of information
Recent developments in computer supported cooperative work in design: From group collaboration through global connectivity to informing apobetics

  • 2012
TLDR
The paper identifies a gradual shift in the research interest from the technological and procedural aspects to the socio-cultural, inter-personal and informational aspects and proposes that collaborative design is eventually about people.

A collaboration-centred approach to manage engineering knowledge: a case study of an engineering SME
TLDR
It is argued that knowledge management can be achieved within SMEs by the creation of a knowledge-sharing culture and a prototype software tool, called KALIS, has been developed to foster collaboration within teams of professionals.
Modelling interactions to support and manage collaborative decision-making processes in design situations
TLDR
This framework intends to help designers to support both technical and organisational decisions, and originality comes from the concepts of 'specific role' and 'action plan' that enhance the recursive modelling of activities and are valuable at different detail levels of the decision-making processes.
CAD/CAPP Integration using Feature Ontology
TLDR
A semantically based information exchange protocol that will facilitate seamless interoperability among current and next generation computer-aided design systems (CAD) and between CAD and other systems that use product data is discussed.
