Recently, some web-based tools have been proposed to support both
individual designer and design teams in the management of information
and in assisting concurrent distributed design activities. The rationale
which is often underlying such proposal is to enhance
design-manufacturing engineering or product data management (PDM)
systems for managing product development as a single integrated business
process. The focus of this paper is on presenting a logical model which
can drive the conception of tools for supporting the distributed
management of design data of mechanical products (DDDM: Design Data
Distributed Management). How the model can be fruitfully used to support
individual/group technical activities and group organisational
activities, especially in the product design review phases during the
product development process, is discussed. The main functionality and
the client/server architecture of one of these tools is also described,
and, lastly, a case of study is reported in order to explain how the
model can be applied.
