Paper Abstract

In an attempt to create a generic designing approach for mechanisms, an integrating backbone structure has been proposed and is being created. This employs constraint modeling techniques to interface between a specifier, schemer and optimizing facility. Many of the individual units have already been created and tested in previous research programs. Work is now underway upon the integration structure. The completed system will be described and demonstrated. This is designed to allow the user to enter a combination of constraint rules, preferred arrangements, performance profiles and function diagrams. The constraint modeler then attempts to resolve any conflict in the requirements and to undertake various optimization procedures to create a design solution.
