The use of design exemplar in applications varying from model creation to developing feature recognition systems has been shown in the literature. Though exemplar authoring for small applications is simple, it is often seen that for complex applications, the authoring of exemplars becomes a tedious task. The use of exemplar networks (static exemplar networks) by linking smaller exemplars to form a huge exemplar has been suggested to reduce the authoring time and effort. This paper identifies the limitations of the static exemplar networks and proposes a more flexible form of networking called the “Dynamic Exemplar Network”. The use of a Dynamic node for this purpose is suggested. The structure of the dynamic node and the various types of networks that may be developed to efficiently solve a design problem is presented in the following sections.
