    Mather & Platt has established a reputation as a leading exponent of CAE in the mechanical engineering sector. This paper demonstrates the increasingly important role of solids modelling in the field of engineering design, highlighting its application as a design visualisation tool. A number of case studies are described to illustrate the variety of work pursued in the two years that this new ... View full abstract»

    Over the last few years, there has been a major increase in the use of engineering workstations for design, simulation and testing of electronic circuits. The same period has seen both significant reductions in system costs and considerable technological development. This paper examines the capabilities of current computer-aided electronics design equipment. View full abstract»

    Computer-aided engineering, as distinct from computer-aided design or manufacturing, is a state of nirvana which a company must attain gradually. But what is it, why does one need it and how does one begin to achieve it? This paper attempts to answer such questions by reference to a real-life example. View full abstract»

    The Advanced Operations System for electronics design, manufacture and test being used by Lockheed Missiles & Space Company's Space Systems Division represents a realisation of the concept of computer integrated manufacturing. This paper describes the system and the evolutionary phases leading to its development and implementation. The strategies and tactics adopted, as well as the management ... View full abstract»

    The finite-element method is a powerful tool for computer analysis of the characteristics of complex structures and components. This paper presents the fundamental principles of finite-element analysis together with the reasons for its use, and makes a case for introducing finite-element analysis techniques more often and earlier in the design of engineered parts.
