    The design of electrical machines is a complex problem which accounts for magnetic, mechanical and thermal aspects. All these problems may be described using the finite element analysis technique, coupled with CAD techniques, offering a simple and flexible way for introducing the numerous data (machine geometry, grid, material characteristics etc.), and an easy way for interpreting the numerical r...

    Addresses software and its development methods and tools, pointing out the special factors that appear to make software different. The paper starts with a discussion of the problems and the solution of treating software development as an engineering activity. Much software development is office work, and general computer aids for the support of office work are described. This leads into a discussi... View full abstract»

    Many small- and medium-sized companies making goods to customer order have problems in estimating their manufacturing costs. These problems increase as the product becomes increasingly customised, and cannot be built from a range of standard products and sub-assemblies. A cost-estimating system is described which develops a feature-based description of the product and a description of likely probl... View full abstract»
