Set-based concurrent engineering (SBCE) has been pointed out as a means of enabling customisation and easy adaptation to fluctuating requirements. A feature and script based automation method of Finite Element Analysis has been proposed and developed by [Johansson, 2014] to help support SBCE. This article presents an assessment of the purposed method with respect to its industrial need, scientific novelty, and further work required. Outcomes of which include a new CAD-model tagging technique, positive industrial feedback and further work suggestions.
