Abstract : Our efforts have focused on an architecture for the development of a design and modeling framework for knowledge-based engineering. Emphasis has been placed on generic methods applicable to both defense and commercial electro- mechanical systems. This report will address both the results of the small business innovation research program and subsequent investments by Ford Motor Company, Lockheed-Martin and other system manufacturers which have focused on engineering analysis, geometric modeling, meshing, visualization, and simulation methods. The report will also highlight the leveraging of in-house federal laboratory research programs, specifically, materials process design research within the Wright Laboratory, Materials Directorate. All of the above investments and interactions have contributed toward further advancing and applying knowledge-based engineering methods for integrated product and process design.
