An easy to use tool for productdesign: The CARP Software
1997 (English)In: Schriftenreihe WDK, 1997, 301-308 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
Today's CAE tools are focused on the later stages in the product development process and execute specific product tasks such as CAD, CAM and FEM. We have from our own experience and other research work [Yoshikawa 89] understood that there is a definite lack of CAE tools that can be used in the early stages of the product development process, which we here call preCAD. The objective of this research project is to develop a tool where the early phases of the product development process are modeled transparently and logically in a computer. The tool we are working on is called CARP; Computer Aided Rapid Product Development. It will support concurrent engineering by reducing product development lead time. CARP will also capture design history from the Specification phase (Elaboration of the Problem), through the Concept phase (Conceptual Design) and all the way to the Elaboration phase (Embodiment Design using Solid Modeling CAE). Quality and efficiency in the product development process will be improved by using this kind of tool.
