Abstract

The present field study compares different types of CAD models for design, and explores which of two templates - with or without advanced features - is more efficient, and why. Design engineers from a company solved three adaptive design tasks. Design performance, design time, and design process were analyzed. The results of this study show that the usefulness of templates with or without advanced features depends on the complexity of the task. In accordance with the results of the study's CAD models, new guidelines are created.

Keywords: knowledge-based design, advanced feature, CAD Design, templates
