    Abstract

    Integrating material, component and process design issues becomes increasingly important as polymer composites penetrate the durable goods market and as traditional markets like aerospace experience increased affordability pressures. To facilitate the integration of such issues, a suite of knowledge-based systems is being developed for intelligent decision support. In the context of integrated design, knowledge-based systems can capture and facilitate the use of engineering design knowledge, freeing design engineers for more creative tasks and allowing a more comprehensive exploration of the overall design space. The current suite includes: COMADE, a system for polymer composite material design and COFATE, a system for polymer composite fabrication technology selection. COMADE considers performance requirements and environmental conditions and generates multiple designs for the matrix materials, any necessary chemical agents, fiber types and fiber length. COFATE evaluates sixteen technologies using qualitative economics, abstract geometric features and other processing issues. COMADE and COFATE show the capability to organize and reason about composites design knowledge. A direction for their continued development involves focusing their current knowledge and reasoning on specific application market segments or on specific product lines of materials. This work discusses these avenues of development and the impact on intelligent decision support in composites.
