Introduction. The first generation of general purpose computers quickly demonstrated their usefulness in handling problems involving large quantities of data with great speed and accuracy. Because of the complexity of these computers, their designers were soon enmeshed in these kinds of problems when dealing with the design data. Out of this experience was born Design Automation, which is used here to mean the art of using computers to aid in the design of computers. DA, as it is often abbreviated, might more it is often abbreviated, might more accurately stand for "design assistance", since the "automation" part relates more closely to the automatic manufacturing processes to which it supplies data, than to the design process itself.
