ACCORD : Developing Concepts Towards Integration of Analysis and Design
This paper outlines some concepts developed in ACCORD to help integrate analysis and design of systems into a coherent computer aided environment. Such concepts include : computational speed-up through concurrent processing, on-line access to engineering expertise, data sharing across engineering domains.
a library of mathematical routines optimized for concurrent processing (APPEAL),
a novel life cycle costing software facility,
an advanced thermal engineering software environment featuring on-line access to specialist expertise,
an advanced reliability engineering software facility featuring knowledge-based assistance to the user.
All packages can either be used separately or integrated via a common Database Management System (INGRES). A demonstration on a VAX station will be available at the 1989 Esprit Week.
