Process integration and media-assisted traceability in cross-organisational engineering

Year 2006

Many engineering domains involve an intricate interplay of conceptual synthesis of alternative requirements and design configurations, preliminary impact analysis of these alternatives using complex simulations and multimedia visualisations and human decision-making. Design traceability in such settings must be both product-oriented and process-oriented: it must enable an efficient media-based comparison of product alternatives from the current project or related experiences, and it must facilitate the reuse of modelling experiences to avoid unnecessary repetition of costly experiences. We have studied these problems in a large interdisciplinary project. Its aim is to optimise cross-organisational engineering tasks linking chemical engineering, plastics engineering and related application demands, for example, in the automotive industry. The solution presented in this paper integrates ideas from scenario-based modelling, process integration and ontology-based management of multimedia artefacts.
