Abstract

This research focuses on the conceptual design of a Knowledge-based Engineering (KBE) System. A concept for the KBE System and its requirements are described and an outlook of the KBE structure is provided. The KBE System supports design engineers to better understand the impacts of their design decisions on the entire product/system lifecycle. The following points are addressed: Clarification of the evaluation criteria for sustainability assessment, concept development for the KBE System and establishment of a comprehensive knowledge base.
