1992 Artificial intelligence for engineering design, analysis and manufacturing  
While computers have made a dramatic impact on most realms of business and industry, engineering has been a notable exception. The current technology, computer aided drafting (CAD) is useful only long after engineers have made their fundamental design decisions. The next generation of tools should provide knowledge aided design (KAD), where computers supply the knowledge necessary to help engineers in the earlier stages of design when they make the more basic, and expensive, decisions.
