Abstract

The paper discusses methods and interfaces for manual recording, management and visualization of relations between engineering objects aiming to suggest most convenient interface tools and methods for relating objects of a particular pair or set of domains. The tools/methods considered are browser, diagram and matrix. The browser interface was used to relate objects from hierarchically structured domains such as file system and product structure. Objects belonging to domain pairs without hierarchical structure were interrelated using the matrix interface. For engineering objects involved in multiple complex relations (both intra- and inter-domain) we argue that the most convenient technique is to create and visualize such a network of relations directly by drawing diagrams using the specific diagram methodology and tool. A matrix style interface concept integrates different methods and tools in a way that should contribute to building of shared understanding of design projects on the company level. Elements of interface could be considered as predefined contexts for relation recording and indexing as well as guidance for information and knowledge retrieval.
