Abstract

The jet engine industry relies on product models for early design predictions of attributes such as structural behavior, mass and cost. When the required analysis models are not linked to the governing product model, effective coordination of design changes is a challenge, making design space exploration time-consuming. Master modeling (MM) approaches can help alleviate such analysis overhead; the MM concept has its origins in the computer-aided design (CAD) community, and mandates that manual changes in one model automatically propagate to assembly, computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) and computer-aided engineering (CAE) models within the CAD platform. Knowledge-based master models can also be used to communicate changes in the product definition to models that are external to the CAD platform. This paper presents details of the knowledge-based master modeling approach as applied to mechanical jet engine analysis and design, where different fidelity models and analysis tools are supported in the early design stages.
