The growing interest in the specification and development of user friendly and easy to maintain design tools has urged engineers to develop and use design knowledge acquisition and modelisation methodologies. In this chapter, we present a comparative study of the application of two knowledge modelisation methodologies in the field of mechanical design. The modelisation capabilities offered by these methodologies are presented, illustrated, and discussed referring to their application to the

This study takes place in a global project for the creation of a generic development tool for design applications. This project includes three phases: the development and use of a design knowledge modelisation methodology, the specification and development of a Design Description Language, and the specification, development and use of a system allowing the execution of the modelised problem, linked with traditional CAD/CAM systems.
