Research on Product Model Based on Object-Oriented Method
A product structure model for Rapid Product Design (RPD) is discussed. It is composed of Assembly Topology Tree (ATT) that describes the assembly relation between parts and the Part Topology Tree (PTT) that describe the geometry relation in a part, and it explains the constraint relations and the selection conditions between the components and parts. Product model class and its subclasses are built by Object-Oriented method to describe the structure and relation of a product and its components. At last an instance of the product structure model is introduced.
