Paper Abstract

Real world engineering design projects require the cooperation of multidisciplinary design teams using sophisticated and powerful engineering tools. The individuals or the individual groups of the multidisciplinary design teams work parallelly and independently with the different engineering tools which are located in the different sites for often a long time. This paper presents a distributed architecture for integrating such engineering tools in an open design environment organized as a population of asynchronous cognitive agents. A prototype of such an environment with seven independent agents located in the different workstations and microcomputers is presented and a small mechanical design example is used for demonstrating such an environment.
