||An user interface for application protocol design
||Ghodous P, Vandorpe D
||Over the last two decades, there have been numerous efforts directedtowards developing the integrated and computerized product models. Recent advancesto develop a mechanism capable to describe product data throughout the life cycle ofproduct have led to STEP. Designing a STEP application product data model(Application Protocol) is so vast, iterative and complex that it seems necessary todevelop a tool assisting this design.In this paper, we describe an interface that allows the expert of an application to definehis application’s product data model in STEP. The system helps the expert to generateautomatically his standard product data model. The prototype of this tool, using thehypertexts, internet and world wide web, allows the user to easily access to theintegrated resources and the other Application Protocols of STEP in order to specializethe integrated resources. The possibility of verification of the uniqueness of differentuser’s model and mapping the user’s definitions to STEP definitions is provided for theuser. As a case study, the metallic construction application is discussed.
