Abstract

Many software packages are available today to aid or automate various engineering tasks. Most tasks require the input of product definition. Feature modelers are being developed for this purpose. There are many kinds of features and their definition also varies from application to application and product to product. This study assumes that a product model is available as a dual feature-geometric model from the design tasks; the problem then is to extract and map information needed by various applications. This paper outlines one method of achieving the stated objective through a generic mapping shell which has been set up as a frame-based decision tree. Three extraction mechanisms have been identified and functions have been provided for extracting information from the product model if and when needed by the application. The generic mapping shell has been tested by implementing two specific applications: Group Technology coding and Manufacturing Process Selection.
