The Computer-Aided Engineering and Architectural Design System CAEADS is being developed for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers by the Construction Engineering Research Laboratory CERL in Champaign, Illinois. This report summarizes the system requirements, preliminary hardwaresoftware systems design, anticipated costs and benefits, project master plan for system development, and study results, conclusions, and recommendations. It also serves as an introduction to Volumes II through VIII. CAEADS is an integrated system of computer aids to the design process for military construction, supporting the design and review activities of Corps District Offices and the design activities of private ArchitectEngineer firms under contract to the Corps. CEADS objectives are to improve the quality of facility design, enhance the responsiveness of MC design processes to project needs, improve the productivity of Corps design staff, facilitate design review, and thus reduce the costs of constructing and operating military facilities.
