Objectives and Approach

The objective of this project is to develop and validate a prototype of next-generation CAD/CAM knowledge-based product modeller within an open architecture and with open system communication protocols.

The project will focus on:

The project will be based on existing software resources (geometric modellers, inference engine, object-oriented database management system, computing algorithms, etc).

The applications of this project are rotational, 2 -D milled, EDM and sheet metal parts.

Exploitation

A fully integrated product modelling system will enable "right first time" design, improve product quality, reduce product costs, and enable a rapid response to market needs in terms of reaction time and changing specifications.

The project partners intend to develop a commercial product based on the project results and to exploit this by internal application.
