In a very competitive environment, companies that develop products have realized the importance of improving the efficiency of their product development processes. In this context, the principles of
concurrent engineering, a product development approach widely used in today’s industry, are more and more justified. The know how integration and more particularly product – process design rules
from the first development phases take more and more importance in product development. In this paper, we focus on know how integration in mechanical systems design and associated manufacturing processes, dedicated to the reuse of validated and tested solutions. The objective is to automate the routine design of these products. We focus more particularly on a process allowing generating relevant knowledge based applications to help designers during design phases. We suggest in this paper, a “high productive” methodology which allow to manage both the known how capitalization and its use in the project context.
