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.
