Aiming to meet demand of product designers on various knowledge resources, an Internet-based distributive knowledge integrated system (IDKIS) is proposed in this paper. The structure of IDKIS and the key issues regarding its implementation is discussed. Based on the STEP standard, a scheme of knowledge representation with neutral form is introduced. To improve the efficiency of knowledge search, an approach of function driven knowledge search (FDKS) is proposed. Furthermore, combining the artificial neural networks (ANN) and active server pages (ASP) techniques, the FDKS can be used within the Internet environment. Finally, a prototype system to demonstrate the feasibility of the IDKIS is developed. The works presented in this paper provide a feasible distributive knowledge integrated scheme to aid designers developing high quality product quickly and efficiently.

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.
