Abstract

Considerable effort is being expended these days for developing software to aid or automate design and other engineering functions. A comparison of contemporary CAD/CAM/CAE software and engineering tasks reveals a mismatch between the requirements of engineering and the capabilities of contemporary software. The mismatch lies in several areas, which include: sets of information supported, levels of abstraction or detail, and functions to aid visualization, reasoning, and decision-making. This paper examines the mismatch in the above areas and describes models for developing computer-aided tools for automating and integrating some design, engineering, and manufacturing tasks.
