Title: Computer automated and integrated design (CAID).
Author: Farahat, Said.
Abstract: Design engineers now fully recognize the remarkable power of computers, and realize that they must fully optimize their use in the design process. The Computer Automated and Integrated Design (CAID) system is a valuable tool for this purpose. This system offers enhancement from other researched design systems in many ways. It is a shell for easily integrating the knowledge of different design processes. The hierarchical form of the knowledge stored in the system makes it easy for the knowledge engineer to expand it and easy for the designer to understand. The increased of access to its stored knowledge, allows the knowledge engineer to implement the process using the least possible number of codes. This research develops the CAID system and demonstrates its advantages through the designing of a gear train in an interactive design process. This study develops a system which allows designers to use the experience of expert designers while not placing any restriction on the designer's capability to develop creative designs. It provides a creative environment that also supports an automated design capability. The system can provide all the necessary design tools by easily integrating new tools into the environment. The system is a flexible, interactive and integrated environment and is adaptable to various design fields. The designer is able to process more than one design case simultaneously and switch between various design cases and control their process.
