Abstract

In this article, the development and implementation of the concept of Virtual Engineering Object (VEO) is described. A VEO is a computerized real world representation of an engineering object. VEO will act as a living representation of the object capable of adding, storing, improving and sharing knowledge through experience, in a way similar to an expert of that object. In this paper, it is shown through test models how the concept of VEO can be implemented with the Set of Experience Knowledge Structure (SOEKS) and Decisional DNA. The SOEKS/DDNA is a flexible and standard knowledge representation structure to acquire and store experiential knowledge. A test case study for three different drilling machines, drilling tools and the working holding devices is developed to test and demonstrate the implementation of VEO. The test model confirmed that the concept of VEO is able to capture and reuse the experience of the engineering artifacts, which can be beneficial for efficient de-cision making in industrial design and manufacturing.
