Title:
Search for similar technical solutions by object abstraction using an ontology 
Abstract:
The search for existing solutions in mechanical engineering is a key-factor for successful product development. By reusing existing solutions, the amount of work and costs within the product development process can be reduced. However, not only exact matches for a required solution are helpful, but also the suggestion of similar solutions could often meet the requirements and bring benefit. Therefore, the presented research aims at improving the process of retrieving existing solutions similar t...    »
