Communication in aircraft design: Can we establish a common language?
2012 (English)In: 28th Congress of the International Council of the Aeronautical Sciences 2012, ICAS 2012: Volume 1, 2012, 443-455 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
A standardized data model as common language for disciplinary communication in aircraft design could have a significant impact on the efficiency of conceptual/preliminary design efforts and collaborative research in aircraft design. This paper discusses if such a standard could be established and under which circumstances this would make sense. The Common Parametric Aircraft Configuration Scheme (CPACS) is introduced as one potential step towards a unified data model. Experiences in coupling established Multidisciplinary Design Optimization (MDO) environments with CPACS are presented and requirements for setting a standard are discussed.
