  • Publication number: 20050192786
    Abstract: Methods for defining engineering requirements in an electronic environment are disclosed. In one embodiment, a method includes providing at least one of a set of master requirements and a set of version requirements to be applied to the electronic product definition, and referencing an electronic reference document from at least one of the set of master requirements and the set of version requirements, the electronic reference document including one or more particular engineering requirements to be applied to the electronic product definition. Alternately, a method includes defining a callout linked to the at least one of the set of master requirements and the set of version requirements, the callout being adapted to supercede a conflicting engineering requirement set forth in at least one of the set of master requirements and the set of version requirements.

  • Publication number: 20050096952
    Abstract: Methods and systems for usage-based product definition are disclosed. In one embodiment, a method includes instancing one or more usage-based product definition inputs, and assessing at least one of an applicability expression, an engineering requirement, and a manufacturing availability expression. The method further includes generating the product definition based on at least some of the usage-based product definition inputs, applicability expressions, engineering requirements, and manufacturing availabilities. In alternate embodiments, the instancing may include transforming a coordinate system of a component from a component-centered coordinate system to a product-centered coordinate system.

  • Patent number: 5671934
    Abstract: A wheel-mounting assembly for use in a children's ride-on vehicle having a frame includes a cross member extending transversely of the frame providing a mount for two of the vehicle's opposed wheels, and frame-formed support structure in the form of two downwardly extending plates defining a slot for receiving the cross member and providing a mount on which the cross member is fastened. The plates have plural spaced apertures therein and the cross member has apertures which align with the apertures in the plates. Fastening mechanisms in the form of a bolt passing though the aligned apertures and secured in place by a nut, fix or mount the cross member to the plates. Pairs of vertically-spaced apertures in the wall structure enable the cross member to be selectively vertically positioned relative to the plates for accommodating different-sized wheels.
