From concept to embodiment : challenge and strategy

Xu, Zhi Gang, Tang, Ming Xi, & Frazer, John H. (2002) From concept to embodiment : challenge and strategy. In Gero, John (Ed.) International Conference on Artificial Intelligence in Design'02, July 2002, Cambridge University, UK.


Facing with the difficulty in information propagation and synthesizing from conceptual to embodiment design, this paper introduces a function-orientated, axiom based conceptual modeling scheme. Default logic reasoning is exploited for recognition and reconstitution of conceptual product geometric and topological information. The proposed product modeling system and reasoning approach testify a methodology of 'structural variation design', which is verified in the implementation of a GPAL (Green Product All Life-cycle) CAD system.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
