Study on the Representation System of Product Design Knowledge


Article Preview

In this paper, we investigated the knowledge modeling and proposed an ontology description logic theory based on fuzzy interval in order to support the management and reuse of design knowledge. We also established the methods to classify and represent the concept-design knowledge and developed an ontology-based model presenting the design knowledge as well as a model for modeling cycles. We further applied these methods and models to develop a specific ontology-based design knowledge model and validated them in the management system of design knowledge for the construction machinery.
