Abstract

The Active Semantic Design Network supports the designers by various means from the first rough outlines to the finished CAD and rating model. This tool is being extended to allow for the design of product families. To create a product family, one master model is developed from which the other models are derived. The designers can either change parameters of parts of the existing model or replace parts by other ones, either picked from a built-in catalogue or newly created. An important aspect are suitable parameter gradations. The tool supports the designers in finding standardised decimalgeometric parameter values as well as in scaling the master model correspondingly for each model of the family.
