THREE WAYS OF INTEGRATING COMPUTER-AIDED DESIGN AND KNOWLEDGE-BASED ENGINEERING

  • P. C. Gembarski (a1)

Abstract

Knowledge-based engineering (KBE) systems allow an easy adaption of designed artefacts to new functional or design requirements and automating routine design tasks. In the following article the author wants to focus on the three main concepts of linking CAD and KBE and answer the research questions (1) in which way is integration, embedding and coupling of KBE to a standard CAD system like Autodesk Inventor available and (2) how can the single approaches be compared in terms of modelling effort, user competences and system performance.
