This paper describes an extended object data model which is suitable for modeling complex design information. The model provides extensions to object oriented model by providing explicit abstractions for modeling relationships, and constraints associated with objects and relationships, and providing a mechanism to handle the concept of version or alternative objects and configurations. The model has been used to implement a toolkit for modeling shared design information with multiple views and levels of constraints.
