The advanced design and manufacturing/ assembly industry is increasingly operating on a globally integrated, Internet-based collaborative model of design, production and support in which OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers) assemble products out of components and objects (both hardware and software) by a network of distributed suppliers. This distributed client-server digital enterprise collaboration and creation model is enabled by the Internet, company intranets and consortium based extranets. In order to fulfill this need, we have created an object / component-oriented methodology and architecture, that is analytical, quantitative, and open-source computational This paper introduces the methodology, to some extent the object/ component knowledge documentation architecture and offers examples of this industry /academia sponsored R&D effort. As our validation results, and the over thirty supporting enterprises clearly indicate, our 3D web-enabled, interactive multimedia solution can be applied to satisfy a large variety of engineering technology knowledge documentation and learning, as well as hi-tech product and process marketing needs. For education, the created CBL Library is an effective method for outcome-oriented problem solving and assessment because it forces both the student as well as the tutor to focus, and then create new wealth, and encourage outcome-oriented educational practices and follow US ABET (Accreditation Board of Engineering and Technology in the USA), and European educational principles.
