The Influence of Manufacturing Information Models on Product Development Systems

Jie Zhao, Wai Ming Cheung, Robert Young

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


Understanding how to structure and maintain the manufacturing information that supports key decisions in concurrent engineering is critical to the future product development software support systems. The structure of the manufacturing information in both product and manufacturing models has been studied, which can support the integration and the interaction of the design for manufacture and post design process planning activities. The Unified Modelling Language has been employed to design the data structures of an object oriented product model and manufacturing model that can offer manufacturing information support across the design and manufacture phases of the product life cycle.
