Research on Integrated System of Information and Function Based on Virtual Prototyping Technology
Virtual prototyping technology as a key technology for agile manufacturing can deal with multidisciplinary knowledge across different fields. In the complex product development process, the exchange between heterogeneous data in heterogeneous environment is a universal problem encountered, which increases the complexity of collaborative parallel design of virtual prototype. Taking the product models as carriers and the different function requirements as clues, the knowledge structure and expression of product information in various fields was studied. By adopting component object model technology, direct geometry access technology, behavioural modeling technology and parametric design thinking, the interaction among tools in various function units was realized, and the effective integration of information and function in multi-fields was accomplished, the parameter-driven virtual prototype architecture of complex product based on the integration of information and function was created. The feasibility of this architecture has been verified by the actual engineering. This plan provides an effective way to carry out virtual prototype projects for enterprise.
