Abstract

This paper presents an intelligent, natural language-based system to the four major CIM (Computer Integrated manufacturing) data bases in the manufacturing environment: design, planning, manufacturing and accounting data bases. Such a novel integrated framework consists of four databases, four knowledge-based systems, a central manager, and a natural language (NL) user interface. The paper begins with a discussion of the issues of database heterogeneity and integration. Then it gives an overview of the architecture of the integrated framework to link the four CIM database islands and places the position of the NL user interface in the integrated system. Following this, the detailed design of the NL user interface is presented, which is composed of the DCG (Definite Clause Grammar) Parser, Semantic Interpreter and Query Generator.
