Abstract: In this paper, we propose a portalet-based architecture with which e-service functions through calling CAX tools remotely can be realised. Furthermore, as the core of the portalet, the contexts of calling mode service, queueing and managing service, visual I/O service and collaborative service are discussed in detail. In order to verify the feasibility of the method proposed, a running example is given.
Keywords: portalets; e-service provision; CAX tools; queueing models; XML; electronic services; collaborative services; calling mode services; web services; interoperability; information integration; teamwork; CAD; CAPP; CAM; PDM.
