    Presents the results of an investigation which should clarify whether it is feasible to use a hypertext system for the data management of a VLSI design system. A short introduction into the Electronic Design Interchange Format (EDIF) is given, as the hypertext scheme for design data is based on EDIF. The main issues of the hypertext paradigm are reviewed, and the HyperEDIF system is presented. Hyp... View full abstract»

    Demonstrates that, by using a range of Al techniques, a specialised computer-aided design (CAD) tool can be created that enables users unskilled in instrumentation engineering to fully design and manufacture certain custom instruments. The prototype system ThermoShell produces a complete customised thermocouple installation to measure the temperature of a fluid moving in a pipe, a common measureme... View full abstract»

    Presents the design and implementation of a personal computer PC-based netlist compiler for application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) design. The netlist compiler system is an ASIC front-end design software tool, developed using the Turbo C programming language. This software tool enhances the design automation for ASIC design in the Philips Personal Design Station (PPDS) environment. It conv... View full abstract»

  • Computer modelling of a manufacturing process

    Publication Year: 1991, Page(s):205 - 211
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (467 KB)

    The application of computer modelling can involve considerable savings, with a reduction in costs, time taken to manufacture products and the amount of floor space occupied; thus optimising the process. The article examines the use of computer modelling in a sheet-metal manufacturing process, at DCE Ltd., Leicester, and demonstrates the savings to be made. The modelling package used was Simcon's P... View full abstract»

    Presents scheme for developing expert systems in hypertext. Hypertext applications are object-oriented environments, which store information in knowledge-based structures. They offer flexibility and speed in information retrieval problems, and are suitable for filing referenced works in a digitised format. Hypertext is also a convenient means of storing interactive technical documentation on-line.... View full abstract»

  • GFM-an interactive feature modeller for CAPP of rotational components

    Publication Year: 1991, Page(s):217 - 220
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (308 KB)

    Reports on the design and implementation of a feature modelling system (GFM) for the CAPP of rotationally symmetric components. The modular software provides several utilities such as interactive component synthesis, topological validation, dimensioning and tolerancing, graphical display etc. It has been tested for modelling several industrial components and has been found to be versatile in part ...
