Abstract : This report summarizes progress during PHase I of project Titled Assembly Modeling Kernel. The objectives explored during Phase I were: (1) Representations that span conceptual designs and physical constraints that drive decisions for electro mechanical assemblies, (2) Concurrent evaluation of design for manufacturability, assembly, and affordability, (3) Content based retrieval and indexing of product designs, and (4) WWW based approaches to supporting collabooration. A software prototype that implemented free space computations, combinatoric analysis, semantic indexing through alternative key modeling, and a document control system that worked across WWW was implemented.
