Constraint capture and maintenance in engineering design

Suraj Ajit, Derek Sleeman, David W. Fowler, David Knott

Acquisition and maintenance of constraints in engineering design

Suraj Ajit, Derek Sleeman, David W. Fowler, David Knott, Kit Hui
2005 Proceedings of the 3rd international conference on Knowledge capture - K-CAP '05  
Currently, to capture the constraint information, a domain expert (design engineer) has to work with a knowledge engineer to identify the constraints, and it is then the task of the knowledge engineer  ...  It is highly desirable to relieve the knowledge engineer of this task, and so we have developed a tool, ConEditor, that enables domain experts themselves to capture and maintain these constraints.  ...  Maintenance The engineering design process has an evolutionary and iterative nature as designed artifacts develop through a series of changes before a final solution is achieved.  ...

The MOKA Modelling Language [chapter]

Richard Brimble, Florence Sellini
2000 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Development and maintenance of knowledge intensive software applications is a complex and expensive activity. By employing a systematic approach long term risk can be reduced.  ...  Results include a modelling language, called the MOKA Modelling Language (MML), dedicated to KBE application development that models engineering product and process knowledge at one level of abstraction  ...  Development and maintenance of complex KBE applications requires both Knowledge Engineering and Software Engineering techniques. Knowledge must be captured, represented, validated and maintained.  ...

Determining System Design Space Relative to its Architecture and Preventive Maintenance Policy

Shawulu Hunira Nggada
2014 International Journal of Control and Automation  
The search algorithm for optimal or near optimal solutions of preventive maintenance (PM) schedules performs the search within a confined design space.  ...  As the number of constraints increases, determining this number (in outer and inner layer) becomes more complex especially within the inner layer.  ...  In the context of system design optimisation, having a pre-knowledge of the number of design variants helps inform the system engineer about the design space that could be explored in the search for improved  ...

Constraint-Based Consistency Checking between Design Decisions and Component Models for Supporting Software Architecture Evolution

Ioanna Lytra, Huy Tran, Uwe Zdun
2012 2012 16th European Conference on Software Maintenance and Reengineering  
In recent years, the software architecture community has proposed to additionally model the architectural design decisions for capturing the design rationale and recording the architectural knowledge.  ...  In this paper, we propose to overcome this problem by introducing a constraint-based approach for checking the consistency between the decisions and the corresponding component models.  ...  CONCLUSION AND FUTURE WORK In this paper we presented an approach for bridging ADDs and designs and checking their consistencies based on constraints to support software architecture maintenance and evolution  ...
