Framework of a Collaboration-Based Engineering Service System for Mould Industry
Currently, the environment of manufacturing industry is becoming a distribution, specialization and collaboration. Particularly, the mould industry, the basis of the Korea manufacturing industry, is also experiencing those changes and the requirements of customers for mould companies are becoming increasingly diverse. To cope this, mould enterprise is endeavoring for satisfaction of the requirements in order processing, mould & part design, mould machining, and pre-injection which are unique jobs of mould enterprise. But, a lot of inferiority is occurring by a poor production environment. In order to troubleshoot this inferiority, the engineering services such as CAE analysis and inspection are absolutely required. The function of engineering service provides major businesses within mould company with new needs and rules. In this paper, the framework of e-engineering service system is implemented with the e-business and the e-commerce form. Also, functions in framework of e-engineering service system are implemented by using agent modules.
