Abstract
LACK OF NON-GEOMETRIC KNOWLEDGE IS IDENTIFIED AS A FUNDAMENTAL FLAW OF THE MODELERS UPON WHICH MOST TRADITIONAL THREE-DIMENSIONAL COMPUTER-AIDED DESIGN (CAD) SYSTEMS ARE FOUNDED. A HYBRID REPRESENTATION SCHEME IS OUTLINED WHICH ADDS NON-GEOMETRIC SEMANTICS TO THE TRADITIONAL MODELING METHODS TO FORM A KNOWLEDGE BASE (K-BASE). THE K-BASE SYSTEM OUTLINED BORROWS CONCEPTS FROM ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE RESEARCH THAT WILL PROVIDE THE BASIS FOR PRODUCTIVITY INCREASES DEMANDED FOR THE FUTURE.
