Abstract: In this paper, a client/server framework has been developed to enable a dispersed team to accomplish a feature-based design task collaboratively. A manipulation client+modelling server infrastructure has been proposed to facilitate consistent primary information modelling for multiple users and adaptability of the system. Based on feature-to-feature relationships, a distributed feature manipulation mechanism has been proposed to filter the varied information of a working part during a co-design activity to avoid unnecessary re-transferring of the complete large-size CAD files each time when any interactive operation is imposed on the model by a client. In the distributed environment, a design task and the engaged clients are organised and connected through working sessions generated and maintained dynamically with a collaborative server. The environment is open to downstream manufacturing analysis modules to achieve distributed concurrent engineering. © 2003 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
