This paper reports on a knowledge rich design repository system. Current design tools and methodologies are reviewed and used to identify necessary design knowledge to populate a design repository. Building on previous research, an operational design repository is reviewed. The design repository system demonstrated includes a single point of entry application for product information, a relational database for archiving design knowledge and web-based tools. Web services are used to support design knowledge retrieval through search, browse and real-time design tool generation. From the repository interface, design tools such as bills of materials and design structure and function component matrices are generated. The output design tools are tested in real world design applications and validated. The result is a useful tool — applicable to several phases of product design.
