Research on Ontology-Based Knowledge Acquisition and Reuse for Fixture Design
Management of fixture design knowledge is vital for improving product quality and reducing product lead time, but there is no efficient and effective mechanism in current computer-aided fixture design systems to integrate fixture design process, to share design resource as well as acquisition and reuse knowledge. Ontology is increasingly seen as a key technology for enabling semantics-driven knowledge processing. On the background of a architecture of fixture design system based on knowledge introduced in the paper, we presented and expatiated a fixture design knowledge acquisition and reuse technology based on ontology, which embeds ontology in current computer-aided fixture design based on knowledge. Finally, the related case study was given.
