Abstract

In the manufacturing industry, an important segment of information appears in the form of numerical data about materials and their behaviour in products. Alongside the collection of these data goes the collection of knowledge about their meaning and significance as an asset to production and as a part of the world's collection of knowledge. The paper shows how such data can be collected and stored in computer systems and how knowledge increasing the data's value can be added. First, the design of a data and knowledge system needs to be tailored in a way to fit the user's well defined purpose. Then, a variety of such systems will be integrated into a network permitting the extension of the range, type, and purpose of the information stored which can then be transmitted, in the most efficient manner, to where it is needed. The concept presented is based on experience gained from operating the data evaluation system High Temperature Materials Databank'' (HTM-DB) developed by the CEC Joint Research Centre in Petten.
