The application of information technology to elements of the design and engineering process. It includes all types of performance systems, e.g., heat transfer, structural, electromagnetic, aeronautics, and acoustic analysis.
also called EDA (Electronic Design Automation), is a technique for using computers to help with all phases of engineering design work; similar to computer-aided design (CAD), but also involves the conceptual and analytical design steps; CAE tools help engineers capture and verify the functional and physical characteristics of their designs before they actually manufacture them, thus reducing the time and cost of the design process; CAE tools also allow designers to design much more complex products than they would otherwise be able to.
CAE (which once stood for Canadian Aviation Electronics, but now has no official meaning), is a leading provider of simulation technologies, modelling technologies and integrated training services to airlines, aircraft manufacturers, and defense customers worldwide. The company has annual revenues in excess of CAD $1 billion, with manufacturing operations and training facilities in 19 countries on five continents. It was founded in 1947.
