Computerized engineering architectures promise to significantly improve the processes for designing complex systems. This paper investigates the application of the Adaptive Modeling Language AMLTM to the aircraft design process. Models were developed to perform a limited trade study between the sizing of a wing box for high speed maneuvers and the available roll control power at landing speeds. The project was built upon some previous efforts that also used AML. While the results of the trade study were not very interesting, the project did illustrate the advantages of combining diverse disciplines in a single engineering environment. It demonstrated the ease with which existing capabilities in the environment can be reconfigured and applied to a new engineering problem. This project also added to the confidence that a much more expansive system can be developed.
