Abstract

This paper examines a possible merger of methods and techniques of Computer Aided Systems Theory (CAST) and Knowledge-Based System Design and Simulation Methodology. The basic tenets of both methodologies and the state of their implementation in computer-aided environments are discussed. The central focus of the paper is the application of CAST techniques to support the design model construction and development process.
