Abstract. An emerging model in concurrent product design and manufacturing is the
federation of workgroups across traditional functional "silos." Along with the benefits of
this concurrency comes the complexity of sharing and accessing design information. The
primary challenge in sharing design information across functional workgroups lies in
reducing the complex expressions of associations between design elements. Collaborative
design systems have addressed this problem from the perspective of formalizing a shared
ontology or product model. We share the perspective that the design model and ontology
are an expression of the "meaning" of the design and provide a means by which information
sharing in design may be achieved. However, in many design cases, formalizing an ontology
before the design begins, establishing the knowledge sharing agreements or mapping out the
design hierarchy is potentially more expensive than the design itself. This paper introduces
a technique for inducing a representation of the design based upon the syntactic patterns
