Abstract:

The potential advantages of a computerized MCDG system, as compared to hard copy guides, lie in its ability to utilize state-of-the-art data management and graphics display techniques to provide the user easy access to frequently updated data for use in manufacturing coststructural performance trade-off studies. This program was undertaken to construct a sample system for validating the concept of a computerized MCDG utilizing data submitted by several aerospace companies. Through this concept validation effort, an implementation plan was evolved which would outline a full-scale MCDG. Concept validation was undertaken by determining the user needs and system requirements as a basis for system design. A sample data base was then generated for test evaluation and critique of the developed sample system. The sample system was constructed utilizing existing modules of the BASIS Battelle Automated Search Information System and the IGS Integrated Graphic System software.
