The concept of product view and the corresponding required models is a basic constituent of a product development process. Integration across product views is addressed through an analysis of the key characteristics of current geometric modellers. Here, topological and geometric issues are identified and major shape modelling principles are studied. As a result, the core concepts of a framework for product view integration are proposed and justified. The notions of mixed shape representation and layered topological representation are briefly outlined as part of the proposed framework. Categories of operators enabling the required shape transformations are also shortly introduced as element of the proposed framework.
