Allen, R., 2002. Representing and handling formal and informal information for the selection of standard components. Thesis (Doctor of Philosophy (PhD)). University of Bath.
This research work investigates the information requirements of the engineering designer during the early phases of the design process. In particular, it focuses on the use of standard components, and the information requirements associated with them. The research presents a system for the representation of information, both formal catalogue data, and also what the author has termed "Informal Information". Also presented is a system for the representation of catalogue information that will allow for standard component catalogue interfacing.
