• Engineering design is a highly regulated activity. Design decisions need to be negotiated in light of engineering laws, professional standards, and other federal regulations. In this paper we are interested in the integrated and flexible support of engineering design. Integration requires that domain knowledge be an integral part of the design support system rather than an add-on. Flexible support requires that laws and regulations remain accessible and updatable to reflect technological advances and changes in regulations as they occur. We present a knowledge and object model that satisfies these two criteria. Designing a compliant engineering artifact is a lengthy and non-monotonic refinement process. We define a set of design milestones. We define the semantics of the object model and of the associated design milestones. ()
