    Abstract

    An integrated view of material, part, and process design in polymer composites enables effective design decisions to be made and to subsequently serve as the basis for the continued success of polymer composites. A knowledge-based system for composite fabrication technology selection is currently in its second generation. In the original prototype, fourteen parameters dealing with part, processing and economic issues were entered by the user. These inputs were matched with knowledge about each of the processing technologies and yielded an output which assessed the suitability of each technology. The capabilities of the technology selector have been augmented by an expansion of the knowledge base from the original eight to the current sixteen technologies. Other improvements include the optimization of the knowledge organization of the technology selector and the enhancement of the user interface. Initial efforts have begun to combine the technology selector with another knowledge-based system that designs polymer composite materials.
