We consider the process of order determining of elements connection as a stage of preproduction engineering for the use in the design phase of production department organization structure. The initial data are: given design object (production department), operating conditions and options of equipment. Conventional approaches are considered; a new method is proposed notable for better visualization. The essence of the approach lies in replacement of the simplified contour shapes and symbolic notations on unified three-dimensional models (UTM). UTM is a three-dimensional model created from the real object - prototype by means of generalizing abstraction. The best known representative of the group is chosen as a prototype. Stepwise method of UTM creating is presented. Testing results of the method for two specific groups of technological equipment are given: screw-cutting equipment and industrial manipulators with an anthropomorphic arm. An original program module is developed that works in conjunction with additional means for information content enhancement according to the algorithm of creation of multi-component 3D-models. The proposed solution is intended for developers of automated preproduction engineering systems.
