ONTOLOGY DEVELOPMENT FOR MODEL-DRIVEN DESIGN IN KNOWLEDGE BASED ENGINEERING

Stefan van der Elst, Michel van Tooren

Abstract

Knowledge is a vital component of engineering design. Computer systems enriched with logic and engineering knowledge can support engineering design by automating routine configuration design processes. This automation is well structured in the framework concept of a Design and Engineering Engine, applying Knowledge Based Engineering techniques. The lack of recognized development methodologies implies significant investments for the development and maintenance of Design and Engineering Engines. To alleviate the required effort a generic structure for design knowledge is being developed. To that end, a classification of configuration design processes is proposed as well as a classification of knowledge elements. The resulting structure can be considered a Domain Specific modelling Language. To validate the proposed structure, a case study of a assignment problem in the field of wire harness design is presented. Using the Domain Specific modelling Language, the source code for the product model can be generated automatically using a model-driven approach.
