Engineering Service Bureau (ESB) Paradigm
This paradigm presents ESBs as organizations that
offer affordable, Internet-based, product-specific
capabilities ranging from

DAI techniques are the hallmark of this type of bureau,
enabling friendly usage by non-analysts. IntrAnet-based ESBs inside larger companies are are also envisioned to enhance designer access to analysis. See the following links for further information.
