  • Patent number: 7765505
    Abstract: Disclosed is a rule management apparatus which acquires a design rule for regulating a part shape from systems such as a CAD system 401, converts the acquired deign rule into data having a hierarchical node format, calculates relationship strength which indicates strength of a relationship between the design rule converted into data having a hierarchical node format and another node, sets to the relationship strength between design rules which are substantially the same but described in different systems to be a maximum value, and stores in an integrating rule DB 300 the relationship strength and the design rules in association with one another.

  • Publication number: 20090214109
    Abstract: It is possible to compatibly set multiple “dropout” color ranges and “non-dropout” color ranges and uniquely determine a dropout boundary. An object of the present invention is to greatly conserve maintenance cost of adding a new dropout form after apparatus operations. A conventional technology aims at assuring relation to a predetermined color region, determining the presence or absence of contention, or uniquely settling a dropout boundary. The present invention provides a means for supplying levels to a “dropout” color range and a “non-dropout” color range. A registered color range histogram can be quasi-three-dimensionally visualized so that an operator can make adjustment by viewing a contention determination result and an image.

  • Publication number: 20080077902
    Abstract: A design change range determining apparatus assigns a link between the one and another elements to generate link information table regarding the assigned link, and when the element is specified through an input unit, retrieves link information table to obtain the parent node associated with the specified element, obtains a child node associated with the parent node, and further obtains a child node which is a parent node of the obtain child node; and display the obtained parent nodes and child nodes on a display.
