Abstract

The manufacturing companies are facing the challenging dilemma on how to achieve better quality products while reducing manufacturing costs and define the processes as environmentally benign. This is a challenge at the time when the consumers are not willing to pay more. One of the ways this challenge can be met is to build better information structure and knowledge base that will support product development environment catering to multiple stakeholders with conflicting set of goals. This paper aims to outline need for common information architecture for saving and utilizing more realistic manufacturing parameters as a basis for improved product design and enhanced, cost efficient and sustainable production. It concentrates on the knowledge representation for combining product, process and system knowledge into structural shareable reference architecture. The knowledge model s feasibility is tested in a holonic manufacturing environment.
