ABSTRACT
Since the late 1980s it has been suggested that product modelling is the key to computer
integrated engineering, which is also a prerequisite for computer assisted concurrent
engineering. Later experiences have shown that product modelling alone is not sufficient and
that other aspects, such as processes, documents etc. have to be modelled as well. In this paper
we suggest environment modelling as an approach which integrates all kinds of construction
information, such as the information about products, processes and documents. We propose an
environment modelling framework which decomposes an abstract concurrent engineering
environment into several modelling spaces. For practical reasons we use a two dimensional
orthogonal framework decomposition. Along the first axis the framework is decomposed
according to the modelling aspect (construction, information system, generic), and along the
second axis according to the level of detail (neutral, aspect, application). In this paper we
