Fuzzy Product Configuration in Advanced CAD Systems

  • Egon Ostrosi

Today, configuring the mechanical systems and their components correctly so that they meet their functions efficiently and can be easily manufactured and assembled is crucial to effective product design. However, currently there exists no systematic and effective method for designing configurations. This paper proposes and develops a formal representation for supporting the computer-aided design approach for configuration. Two interrelated questions are taken into account: 1. What are configuration features? (Configuration feature concept); 2. How can be constructed the design procedures capable to configure the product? (Computer-aided design approach for configuration). This approach, under the guide of the proposed formal representation, has been implemented in computers by using the functions of current CAD software.
