Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Purpose The main purpose of this paper is to briefly discuss the concept of product data management (PDM) describing the contributions, objectives and some currently existing challenges. Design-methodology-approach By targeting the described challenges, it proposes a new semantic-oriented agent and knowledge base approach and presents its conceptual and implementation designs. The available prototype version of the proposed approach is also briefly discussed. Findings The PDM community is facing some challenges especially in intelligent PDM development, i.e. unfriendly graphical machine interface, unintelligent search and unstandardized-based platform independent PDM system deployment and deployment framework. Originality-value An intelligent semantic-oriented agent-based search is an original and new solution.
