Abstract: Design and manufacturing systems are distributed for efficient utilization of resources, faster time to market for a product and reduced lead-time in the supply chain of a product. Traditional distributed systems are hardwired, very much expensive, limited to a certain geographic location and limited to only a small number of resources. Due to the continuous growth of Internet technology and in particular the World Wide Web, the distributed systems are no longer limited to a certain place and time. Besides, object oriented technology has assisted in the development of modular, scalable and platform independent distributed applications. Two tools, Internet Manufacturing (IMAN) and CyberCAD are developed for web based distributed manufacturing and design respectively. In the approach for distributed manufacturing, a rapid prototyping system is integrated with the object-oriented architecture for client server interaction via the Internet. For distributed design, an object oriented architecture has been proposed and a solid modeling application that is to be web integrated has been developed. The core solid modeling application has been developed with sufficient functionality. The solid modeling application is completely object oriented with its integral capability to be web enabled. Tests were also conducted in order to evaluate IMAN. Research institutes were asked to use the distributed manufacturing system to fabricate a prototype remotely. It was observed that the system allowed the users from different geographic locations to perform remote fabrication of a prototype with considerable ease. In the tests, real life prototypes were successfully fabricated remotely. In addition, Resources are utilized in real time irrespective of the location. Preliminary tests on the solid modeling tool incorporated in CyberCAD were also successful. The basic algorithms involved in the design and development are presented in this thesis. The tool is now ready to be integrated web interaction capability. The groundwork for IMAN and CyberCAD has been successfully laid and the next step is to incorporate greater functionality. With the envisaged integration of these two tools, rapid product development will then be realized.
