Modellering en structurering van produkten.
Report 93.3.LT.4031, Transport Technology, Logistic Engineering.
Due to the growing automation and needs of product flexibility it is
necessary that product information is recorded unambiguously and
correctly. lt should be possible that different applications make use of
this information. Drawings or parts of a drawing should be available
immediately on designing a product using a CAD database system.
Product structure has an important role within the product model. Because
of the redundancy in traditional bill-of-material (BOM) systems it is
recommended to use a generative concept as a basis. Starting with a source
BOM a result BOM is determined by means of parameters. As improvement on
the generative concept a generic BOM is developed. It is possible to
describe a product or part on each level of the product structure, so
redundancy is avoided.
PART, developed at Twente University, is a generative CAPP system.It
uses the concept of 'features'. It can be used to design new products, to
control de production (NC-machines) and it supports production
Last couple of years TNO-Bouw in Rijswijk has been dealing with
international standardization (ISO-STEP) and made a reference model for
the AEC part (Architecture, Engineering and Construction) named GARM.
