Today's complex leading-edge design processes require the use of multiple CAD tools that operate in multiple frameworks making management of the complete design process difficult. This paper introduces the concept of framework encapsulations: software wrappers around complete CAD frameworks that allow the design data and flow management services of a framework to be utilized by a common design process management tool. This concept has been applied to the Minerva II Design Process Manager, enabling Minerva II to manage the design process across multiple CAD frameworks, and potentially multiple design disciplines.
