summary In this research, design process knowledge is represented at two different levels, action level and object level, corresponding to the meta-knowledge to model design behaviors and the special knowledge to model the processes in designing particular objects. A design knowledge base and database modeling language - Integrated Data Description Language (IDDL) was developed at the University of Tokyo to model both design processes and design objects. This language combines logic programming functions and object oriented programming functions into an integrated environment. Using this language, an intelligent CAD system - Intelligent Integrated Interactive CAD (IIICAD) was developed at the University of Tokyo. Contradictions of knowledge base and database are resolved using circumscription and Assumption-based Truth Maintenance System (ATMS) in this system. Many advanced knowledge modeling techniques, including Qualitative Process Theory (QPT), modal logic, default reasoning, etc., have also been introduced in the IIICAD system. The knowledge base and database representation scheme of IDDL serves as the basis in the feature-based integrated concurrent design system. In the integrated concurrent design system, a new feature modeling language was introduced. In addition to the qualitative and quantitative data/relations that were introduced in IDDL, the composing element features, data dependency relations, constraints, 2D and 3D feature geometric descriptions have also been introduced for representing product life-cycle models and their relations. Optimization functions were added to the integrated concurrent design system to identify the optimal design considering relevant life-cycle aspects.
