Design and manufacture are essential to the UK economy and reflect one of the most innovative and creative activities of UK business. A rising demand of design has been seen in the requirement of increased efficiency, reduced costs, and manufacturing flexibility. The design and manufacture are driven by technological innovation and intellectual ingenuity. For this, Computer-Automated Design (CAutoD) promises many benefits, including higher flexibility, improved efficiency (in design, manufacture and energy use), and improved design quality. However, there are many challenges to be overcome before concepts and creativity can become commercial designs for manufacture.
