In order to effectively represent assembly process information based on three dimensional (3D) models and rapidly extract the necessary information for assembly process planning, analysis and simulation, this paper aims to research the multiple view representation of assembly process information based on 3D models. Assembly process information based on 3D models is summarized and considered as the single source of the multiple view representation. The definition and organization of assembly process view is defined to implement assembly process representation based on view. Assembly process views based on assembly process planning work flow are established. View mapping approach is investigated to rapidly extract the necessary information for assembly process planning, analysis and simulation. The use of the multiple view assembly process representation is illustrated by building detailed assembly process view and assembly process simulation view and by extracting relevant information for the assembly process simulation view from detailed assembly process view.
