To reduce the Design time of a Lamp product, the development of a case-based reasoning (CBR) system for lamp modeling design is dealt with. One effective way to design a new part is to retrieve a relevant case of exacting similar to a new desired part and then adapt the retrieved case to meet the new requirements. A CBR mechanism for retrieval of lamp part is presented. Its kernel contains: (1) a object-oriented representation of a part; (2) indexing of a part; (3) a feature hierarchical structure based on lamp modeling; (4) a similarity metric to measure the similarity between a new desired part and any existing part in the case base. (5) Adaptation/Evaluation the solution. A prototype system has been developed to verify the usefulness of CBR in lamp modeling design.
