Abstract
Not Available Product design is a multidisciplinary process involving real-time team interaction. Participants explore and refine design concepts following design rationale and guidelines reflecting years of expertise. Recording the design rationale provides a basis for learning and gathering knowledge for future decisions. The objective of this proposal is the development of a web-based collaborative environment incorporating a design support system. This framework employs distributed agents technology for capturing, recording, organizing, and delivering design rationale as identified through the users' multidisciplinary interactions and interdependencies of the design activities. An innovative approach is proposed and implemented on an object-oriented framework to create a commercially viable product. A well-structured mechanism for pattern correlation implemented within a knowledge-base allows the system to provide services that support design activities in a multi-user and multidisciplinary environment. This facilitates trade studies for competing cost versus performance while assuring producability, maintainability, and quality as part of reducing the design cycle. The environment will be used for engineering design decision support and application management in a variety of existing commercial and DoD applications. In Phase I, the system architecture will be completed and its feasibility and impact will be validated on two present DoD applications.
