Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Product design specification (PI)S) is a key step regarding the whole total design process. It is crucial for people who are involved in the product design process to efficiently share and reuse the PDS and related information. With the support of state-of-the-art technologies, in particular, Web Services and Enterprise JavaBeans (EJB), a distributed environment has been established which made future engagements in information utilizing for PDS simpler, faster and more efficient. In this paper, a brief review of the importance of PDS in the entire total design process is given first, followed by the presentation of the technologies involved in this PDS environment. This distributed environment will help manufacturers accelerate product to market and minimize potential design errors in the early product stage.
