Knowledge-Based Engineering (KBE) refers to the use of computer-based systems that enable the automation of engineering design processes through capture, storage, and application of engineering knowledge. KBE systems are built on top of knowledge representation and reasoning technologies, which allow the system to capture and process the knowledge and experience of human experts in a particular domain of engineering. Using KBE systems, engineers can automate conceptual design, detailed design, analysis, simulation, and optimization. Custom products can be created, existing designs can be improved, and design time and costs can be reduced.

Knowledge Based Engineering systems typically consist of three main components: knowledge acquisition, knowledge representation, and knowledge application.

The knowledge acquisition component collects and inputs engineering knowledge into the system. Knowledge representation is the process of storing and organizing knowledge so that it can be used by the system. To automate the design process, the knowledge application component uses the knowledge stored.

KBE Value Addition

Knowledge Based Engineering/Design Automation solutions help engineering organizations develop products and execute projects efficiently and effectively. KBE-Solutions can add significant value to the product development process in several ways:

Speed up the design process:KBE automates repetitive tasks and eliminates errors, allowing engineers to design products more quickly and efficiently. By using KBE tools, engineers can save time and focus on more complex design tasks.

Reduce costs: KBE can help reduce costs by minimizing design iterations, errors, and rework. It can also reduce the time it takes to bring a product to market, allowing companies to get ahead of their competitors.

Improve quality:KBE ensures that designs are based on proven knowledge and expertise. This can help reduce the risk of errors and improve the quality of the final product.

Enhance collaboration:KBE allows engineers to collaborate more effectively by capturing and sharing knowledge across the organization. This can help break down silos and promote knowledge sharing and innovation.

Increase flexibility: KBE allows for greater flexibility in the design process, allowing engineers to easily modify and adapt designs to meet changing customer needs and market demands.

Key Benefits:

  • Turnaround time reduced
