In today’s interdisciplinary environment, design engineers are facing increasing market demands for faster product cycle times. This implies that product-lifecycle processes need to be performed parallelly and faster. Repetitive processes should be questioned. To support the designer, processes can be automated by using clever linking software, Knowledge-Based Engineering (KBE), and a central knowledge base. This paper demonstrates an approach by giving examples of bolted and flange connections. The result supports the user, by providing simulation templates and optimization algorithms.
