Abstract

This paper presents a Design for Manufacturing (DfM) ontology that helps to encapsulate manufacturing and assembly concepts. Through this DfM ontology, various DfM constraints can be captured and formalized using a generalized approach. Such representation has the potential to significantly improve knowledge capture, information retrieval and design collaboration. An example case based on a mechanical assembly requiring MIG welding is presented to demonstrate how the ontology can be used to capture design rationale and analyze design intent. Cost evaluation of the assembly is also presented to demonstrate how the ontology can provide the basis for design evaluation from numerous perspectives.
