We present an exploratory study to improve the performance of a knowledge push system in product design. We focus on the domain of knowledge matching, where traditional matching algorithms need repeated calculations that result in a long response time and where accuracy needs to be improved. The goal of our approach is to meet designers’ knowledge demands with a quick response and quality service in the knowledge push system. To improve the previous work, two methods are investigated to augment the limited training set in practical operations, namely, oscillating the feature weight and revising the case feature in the case feature vectors. In addition, we propose a multi-classification radial basis function neural network that can match the knowledge from the knowledge base once and ensure the accuracy of pushing results. We apply our approach using the training set in the design of guides by computer numerical control machine tools for training and testing, and the results demonstrate the benefit of the augmented training set. Moreover, experimental results reveal that our approach outperforms other matching approaches.
