Xu, Zhijie, Zhao, Zhengxu and Baines, R. W. (2000) Construction of configurable virtual manufacturing environments. In: Proceedings of the 33rd International MATADOR Conference. Springer Verlag, London, UK, pp. 145-150. ISBN 1-85233-323-5

This paper reports a method of constructing configurable virtual manufacturing environments for knowledge representation, acquisition, and shop-floor simulation. The method uses a set of template virtual environments that are developed in a layered structure and stored in a database. The database is developed to store the environments and manage the virtual objects and control data within the each environment. A system is developed based on this method and a user interface is provided for the system to support rapid construction of large-scale and complex virtual manufacturing environments
