Knowledge-Based Support of Quality in Design
The application of expert system technologies within the CIM area is growing, just as the interest, not least for SME’s, in Quality Assurance and the application of dedicated philosophies in that field. The present paper describes how support of quality in design and manufacturing can be approached by means of knowledge-based techniques. This approach can be seen as an exploitation of known software technology in new ways, hereby widening the application area of knowledge-based systems. An expected technology development outcome of the approach is the integration of knowledge-based techniques with other computer applications. Also the focussing on quality support is a new achievement in the field of knowledge-based systems in manufacturing.
