Efficient management of product information is
critical to the enhancement of corporate competitiveness. This
paper explains the design and development of a distributed,
open, and intelligent product data management system. First,
the requirements for Product Data Management (PDM)
systems are summarized and then explained using a design
scenario. Since product data are often managed in distributed
computing environments, Common Object Request Broker
Architecture (CORBA) is employed to ensure interoperability
among distributed objects. Standard formats of data and
knowledge, such as STandard for Exchange of Product model
data (STEP) and Knowledge Query and Manipulation
Language (KQML), are used to achieve the openness. A
workflow management system has been developed that
provide s integrated management of task proce sse s and
information flows. While designing the system, the main
emphasis is placed on dynamic process adaptation which is
demanded by product de ve lopment proce sses. Use of
intelligent agents is proposed to achieve the adaptation at
run time. Amethod of agent cooperation and communication
is described. The agents are also used to implement content
search for enhanced product data services.
