Considering an object-oriented approach to design process planning
by Neven Pavkovic, Dorian Marjanovic
International Journal of Technology Management (IJTM), Vol. 21, No. 3/4, 2001

Abstract: The paper describes the structure of an environment for a design system based on a design plan, which represents a design process. The approach presented establishes a flexible structure, which improves and integrates the usage of software tools available in the design process. Possible design plan topologies, the plan generation and exploitation issues are discussed. The structure of the prototype model has been realised in a relational database environment. The potentials of an object-oriented approach to design process planning are analysed, as well as the possible strategies for improving the prototype procedure. Proposals for structuring a design plan with objects and classes are presented.
