Abstract

The paper points out the importance of systems technology for dealing with complex design tasks in real life problem solving especially in the field of engineering.

After an introduction, where Systems Science and Systems Technology are generally discussed the general framework of Design Science and related Design Technologies are considered.

For the definition of “Systems Technology” the concept of the Design Propeller is used. This is followed by the discussion of CAD tools for dealing with problems on systems level. The specific roles of “Computer Aided Systems Theory”, “Computer Aided Engineering” and “Computer Aided Manufacturing” in the context of “Computer Aided Systems Technology” (CAST) are pointed out.

Future perspectives of necessary CAST research for applications in the “Engineering of Computer Based Systems” (ECBS) and in the development of “Application Specific Intelligent Micro Systems” (ASIMS) are given.
