Consistency Maintenance of Collaborative Product Design Based on the Semantics Reasoning
Consistency maintenance is a key problem in collaborative product design. Firstly, based on product design theory, the semantics relationships described by XML among components in collaborative product design system are made. Secondly, the associated components are determined through backward and forward semantics reasoning. Finally, the data is updated by constraints solving, and the consistency maintenance is achieved.
