Variant Design for Mechanical Artifacts: A State-of-the-Art Survey
James E. Fowler
Variant design refers to the technique of adapting existing design^M specifications to satisfy new design goals and constraints. A survey of^M approaches supporting variant designs is presented. Capabilities used in^M current commercial computer aided design systems are discussed along with^M approaches used in recent research efforts. Information standards^M applicable to variant design are also identified. Barriers to variant design in current systems are identified and ideas are presented for augmentation of current systems to support variant design.
