Abstract

This chapter presents the EXPRESS Data Model (EDM) that has been developed based on the STEP-based modelling environment and the “five-phase” modelling method. The structure of the EDM is discussed and the elements of the EDM – schemas and the relationships between schemas – are presented using EXPRESS language (see Appendix A.3) and EXPRESS-G diagrams.
