This paper explores how to involve human operators in an automated engineering design process. Since humans are superior to interpret geometry they can quickly inspect and evaluate automatically generated design proposals that are presented to them visually. Instead of setting up costly rule engines interpreting the output from the generated design alternatives this paper proposed an approach to visualize the results in a standardized and production like setting enabling the engineers to make quick response to the output of the system. The approach supports set based concurrent engineering.
