Along with the rising complexity of design knowledge, knowledge management which includes knowledge acquisition representation, control, and processing becomes a very difficult task. A good knowledge management scheme is needed to increase the reliability and efficiency of knowledge-based systems. In this paper an efficient knowledge representation scheme for engineering design applications called Frames and Rules Associated System Entity Structure (FRASES) is introduced. With FRASES, complex engineering design knowledge is organized into a hierarchical, entity-oriented tree structure to facilitate control and processing of knowledge. Exploiting well-defined axioms and operations of FRASES, the knowledge acquisition task, accomplished conventionally with time-consuming manual interviewing, can be efficiently automated.
