Abstract
This paper describes the DOE1
supported ARROW (Advanced Reusable and Robust Objects
Warehouse) project, the services it will provide, the research issues it is addressing and how
it fits into the whole UK construction Industry Knowledge Base (IKB) system. The ARROW
project will require the development of new techniques for selection and retrieval of data
across distributed databases. The project is examining how to establish an interface to
distributed databases containing product information, allowing fast and accurate retrieval of
specified products, as well as delivering information in a form useable by CAD systems and
other design tools (e.g., thermal simulation programs). Initial work is looking at appropriate
product selection and techniques for the refinement of options to narrow and improve the
