  • Abstract In the current product development project, it has been gradually towered distributed
    collaborative design. The effectiveness of information transmission is becoming a critical
    issue. However, in the collaborative design process, there is not only the planning of the
    pre-set milestones and events, but also all kinds of exceptional events; such as the shortage of
    resources, delay of activities. Because we cannot deal with it in time, exceptional events
    usually lead to problems like delays or even failure.
    This thesis develops a framework of event management system (EMS) for the
    collaborative product design based on the service-oriented architecture. For the developing
    EMS, the corresponding methodologies were also adopted. 
    1. Object-oriented modeling technique was adopted to model the basis of the entire
    system;
    2. Events classification was applied to find the related service
    3. Extend Event-driven Process Chain (eEPC) bound the needed services to a solution.
    By applying event management system, we expect an effective way to handle the
    complex situation. Finally, electronic reading device industry is a case for the illustration.
