A Perspective on Engineering Database Research
1989 (English)Report (Other academic)
Engineering tasks have become more and more dependent on supporting software. The amount and complexity of engineering data that CAE systems have to deal with, increases continuously and the management of it has become a tedious task. Traditional database technology is ofthen not suited to handle the complex data types needed for engineering. This has lead to the emerging of a new class of databases called engineering databases (EDBs). They combine techniques developed in research areas, such as traditional database research and object-oriented programming, to support the management of engineering data. This report gives and introduction to EDBs by describing the features that a typicat EDB-system should contain, and presents some existing systems that demonstrate these features. The material has been collected mainly from the latest conferences related to EDBs.
