Across product lifecycle processes, engineers continually analyze product behavior and refine product specifications. Owing to the collaborative and multi-disciplinary nature of product realization, engineers work on subsets of a product’s specification, also known as a product view, and use their expertise to analyze domain-specific (e.g., electrical, structural, thermal) product behavior. In this paper, we present the notion of a product view federation that embodies engineering processes related to the creation, enrichment and reuse of a particular product view. We make the first step towards answering the following question — Can one formalize the process of creating a product view federation from component federates to enable knowledge reuse? We describe and exemplify one particular graph-based inference approach for creating the product view federation.
