Abstract

Recently, distributed collaborative development environment has been recognized an alternative environment for product development in which multidisciplinary participants are naturally involving. Reuse of product design information has long been recognized as one of core requirements for efficient product development. This paper addresses an image-based retrieval system to support product design information reuse. In the system, product images obtained from multi-modal devices are utilized to reuse design information. The proposed system conducts the segmentation of a product image by using a labeling method and generates an attributed relational graph (ARG) that represents properties of segmented regions and their relationships. The generated ARG is extended by integrating corresponding part/assembly information. In this manner, the reuse of assembly design information using a product image has been realized. The main advantages of the presented system are following. First, the system is not dependent to specific design tools, because it utilizes multimedia images that can be obtained easily from peripheral devices. Second, ratio-based features extracted from images enable image retrievals that contain various sizes of parts. Third, the system has shown outstanding search performance, because we applied various information of segmented part regions and their relationships between parts.
