Knowledge Intensive Design Technology
is a collection of papers presented at the Fifth Workshop on Knowledge Intensive CAD, which was sponsored by the International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP) Working Group 5.2 and hosted by the Department of Manufacturing Engineering at the University of Malta in July 2002.
The book chapters progressively take the reader through the following sequential sections;
-Part One - KIC Development Approaches, Knowledge Intensive Design Technology
-Part Two - Knowledge Systematization,
-Part Three - Prototype KIC Systems.
makes essential reading for practicing engineers/scientists involved in R&D as well as for relevant Masters and Ph.D. students. The book is also pertinent to those in industry concerned with capturing and structuring company-specific knowledge for proactive reuse to increase product development efficiency, and also to those involved in the development of CAD systems.
