Applying Ontology-based Knowledge Methodology in Product Innovative Collaborative Conceptual Design Framework

Janus S. Liang

Abstract

In this research, an ontology-based knowledge methodology is utilized in distributed design environment. It is composed of a regular restrictions-based method for expressing the aspired functions, a field-independent method for constructing functional knowledge of given criterion solutions, and a heterogeneous-substance-search method for combining given criterion solutions to reach the aspired functions. This research presents that the capability of function design ontology (FDO) to be inferred can acquire the design intentions by an exposition with a real toy product. Finally, this research proposes a novel framework of information sharing in product innovative design and a design viewer for collaboration in product generation.
