An Implementation of Automated Structural Design-To-Cost in a Model Based Engineering Environment

The integration of Computer-Aided Design (CAD) tools with PRICE Cost Analytics™ technology in a Model Based Engineering (MBE) environment allows designers to quickly and easily estimate the cost of structural designs as they are designing, thereby directly supporting Design-To-Cost. This paper will demonstrate how quick and easy it is to estimate modifications to a structural assembly using such COTS integration environment.
