Leading national thinking on politics, government & public policy through Open Access research

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Government & Public Policy, based within the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences.

Research here is 1st in Scotland for research intensity and spans a wide range of domains. The Department of Politics demonstrates expertise in understanding parties, elections and public opinion, with additional emphases on political economy, institutions and international relations.

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.
