A new algorithm has been developed to propagate feature modification automatically across different task domains, such as machining,analysis and modelling. The algorithm takes multiple feature interpretations of a part as input. When a feature in a ‘feature model’ in a certain domain is modified, feature models in other task domains are automatically updated to reflect this change. The algorithm currently handles modifications to feature geometry only. The algorithm is able to detect portions of a feature model that are not affected by the modification made, resulting in efficient propagation of the modification. Automatic propagation of modifications across feature models is very critical in maintaining integrity of the part geometry across the different task domains.
