Design-Analysis Integration

Ubiquitization Methodology

Design-Analysis Integration Methodology for Advanced Technology Transfer [Peak, et al. 1999]

A methodology for transforming analysis research into highly automated analysis modules for regular designer usage. Based on the Multi-Representation Architecture (MRA), a design-analysis integration strategy which represents design-analysis associativity explicitly. Uses a combination of constraint graph and object techniques to provide flexible, highly semantic mappings between commercial design and analysis tools.

[TIGER Logo]

Usage of the MRA in TIGER - a DARPA-sponsored demonstration of prime-supplier collaborative engineering [Peak et al. 1997].   Includes the self-service Internet based engineering service bureau (EBS) paradigm [Scholand et al. 1997] enabled by STEP product-data driven analysis [Tamburini et al. 1997].


Analysis Module Results

Shear Strain Results from an Automated Solder Joint Analysis Module [Peak et al. 1998]

Automated finite element analysis (FEA) from a solder joint deformation catalog - a selection of analysis modules created using the above DAI methodology and implemented in DaiTools .

Modularized Parametric Modeling Results

Autogenerated PWA Finite Element Mesh [Zhou and Fulton, 1997]

Automatically generated using a modular, parametric technique for creating complex FEA models from product data.


Integration of Aerospace Structural Analysis via the Constrained Object-Based (COB) Extended MRA [Boeing PSI, Peak et al. 1999]

[WIP] Work in Progress!
