Abstract
We propose to design and implement a set of CAD queries by which to achieve model interchangeability in assemblies, model interoperability, and model integration for CAD/CAE. A model scenario will be used to illustrate how this can be accomplished. In Phase 1, we will establish the feasibility of the approach, develop high level algorithms and conduct software experiments to verify their efficiency and scalability. Specific manufacturing use cases and delivery via Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) will be designed with a view towards a Phase 2 of the project. The proposed query-based approach to support interoperability for advanced manufacturing is expected to side-step many of the intrinsic problems of data-centric approach that has been promoted by standards bodies over many years. Owing to the flexibility of queries, moreover, the work proposed here is expected to be adopted by vendors and clients alike.
