Brief Note


Along with development of incorporation of world economy, collaborative design and collaborative manufacture of enterprises often occur. Subsystems of a complex product system are often analyzed and optimized individually by different design units distributed at different places. In order to find the optimum designs of overall product systems automatically, the internet-based global coordinating optimization is necessary. In this paper, an email-based communication technology of global coordinative optimization of distributed structural systems is proposed, and its realizing approach, communication, process control, practical software and application example are presented.
