Abstract

Object-oriented data model for computer aided design in electrical engineering I. Salomie," D.G. Elliman* ° Computer Science and Engineering Department, Technical Romania & Computer Science Department, University of Nottingham, ABSTRACT The purpose of this work is to specify a set of concepts and abstractions of object-orientated nature, together with the structural relations among them, as the theoretical and practical bases for designing of ELECTROO, an Object-Oriented CAD environment in Electrical Engineering (EE). As a first approach, we embedded the developed concepts and abstractions in an object-oriented scheme of a modeling system of power electrical engineering designs. INTRODUCTION An object-oriented data model is considered to be most adequate to represent data intensive, high structured, possibly recursive nested, complex objects, like electrical engineering designs. Our purpose is to specify a set of concepts and abstractions of object- oriented
