Paper Abstract

To support and control different design processes using Concurrent Engineering concept, all the information required in different design process must be complete, unique and most importantly, sharable. By close look at the assembly process and design process, this paper proposes an integrated information model of a product based upon its assembly relationship-- the assembly model. With all assembly information recorded and inheritated, an assembly model enables us to develop a product (rather than parts) oriented CAD system, to support top-down design process and, to control multiple design tasks and processes concurrently and ensure the consistency of the design model.
