Abstract

The Design Information Centre is a multimedia database which has been designed to support the activities of Industrial Product Designers throughout Europe. It is one component of the Multimedia Assets for Industrial Design (MAID) project, the other component being the Design Services Centre, which is not discussed here in detail. The work in progress includes a description of the user data services, the multimedia data types, user interface issues, database construction, and the intended user networks. This paper provides a general outline of the project: its aims and objectives, the innovative application of technology, and the underlying network structures.
