|Abstract: ||A valid feature-based representation is one where
instantiated features in a model agree with the features'
expected behaviours, available and defined as a library.
Invalid feature-based models happen when manipulations
on the model change the interrelationship among features
therefore changing the behaviour of an instantiated
Freedom of manipulation is an intrinsic advantage
of using a CAD system and it is taken for granted.
However, even the most basic manipulation, such as
"adding" a feature to a model, is capable of disrupting the
validity of a representation. Furthermore, invalid models
could compromise the usefulness of any following
analysis on it.
Thus, identifying means to operate on an invalid
model to make it valid, through "revalidation operations",
is a necessity in Feature-based CAD systems. It allows
conventional CAD systems (usually more preoccupied
with representing and producing feature-like shapes
within a geometrically constrained environment) to
interface more easily for example with CAPP systems
(usually more preoccupied with planning problems than
with the correctness of the representation).
The framework of a feature-based validation
system, called FRIEND (Feature-based Reasoning
system for Intent-driven Engineering Design), and a
discussion on representation validity analysis is presented
with emphasis on identifying and discussing "revalidation
