A design reuse technology to increase productivity through automated corporate memory system
Increasing competitiveness in engineering industry pressurizes companies to improve productivity of every single element in processes. As a result of this pressure, increasing productivity of design staff and design systems is systematically investigated by industry professionals and researchers. Design reuse appears as an effective approach to increase productivity levels. It has been already used personally by designers consciously or subconsciously. This paper proposes a computer-based design reuse methodology developed with the purpose of efficient corporate memory usage. The paper focused on steel construction infrastructure design process; however, its approach can be easily implemented in different engineering design processes.
