Intelligent CAD

The research on intelligent CAD was started during my stay at University of Tokyo, and continued at University of Victoria and University of Calgary for developing the integrated concurrent design system. This research focuses on modeling of design processes and design objects to support the conceptual design. This research was supported by Japan New Steel Corporation, Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) of Canada, and Gienow Windows and Doors.

Theoretical Achievements

The current CAD systems are primarily used for modeling the design geometry at the detailed design stage when the design solution has been identified. Since the conceptual design at early design stage plays a more important role for improving design quality and reducing production cost, development of intelligent CAD systems is required. The theoretical achievements are summarized as follows.

Industrial Applications

Two industrial applications were developed based on the theoretical results achieved in intelligent CAD. These two industrial applications are summarized as follows.
