Research on Application Technology of Customer-Oriented Product Cooperative Design
The system of customer-oriented product cooperative design(COPCD) provides a platform for customers, on which the customer designers can participate in the cooperative design activity. Through researching on the structure of cooperative design system platform based on internet/intranet, the function, which is expressed with STEP standard file and online display via network, modified as well , in the form of product model created in Pro/E, was achieved by making use of VC++6.0 programming language and OpenGL technology. Moreover, the communication tool NetMeeting was integrated in this platform interface for the communication in the process of cooperative design activities. This system platform conceptually implements the cooperation between customer and designer, the product design efficiency and its success rate would be improved.
