Abstract

This report presents a data management model to support collaborative design. The model monitors independent design activities by systematically tracking component descriptions in the individual disciplines. A multidisciplinary project is then described in terms of independently evolving designs from the participating disciplines. A closely coupled three-layered framework of versions, assemblies and configurations is proposed to manage independent design entities and coordination among design participants. The model has been implemented and validated on both ORACLE relational database system and AutoCAD system.
