KBCADFW: A Knowledge-Based Collaborative Computer-Aided Design Framework
KBCADFW is a collaborative designing platform which integrates CAD/PDM/KM, it manages the product designing resources such as documents, data, knowledge, designing flow etc, KBCADFW uses workflow management system as it’s integration tool to make CAD/PDM/KM working together, it defines product designing knowledge structure and knowledge reasoning algorithm, also defines data exchange format and application integration interface among designing resources, realizing distributed designing resources sharing and application integration. As an knowledge-based product designing platform, KBCADFW solves the key problem in knowledge-based product designing ,such as designing process definition, product designing knowledge expression, knowledge extraction, designing data exchange and application integration etc.
