The extensive possibilities of modern CAD-software turn the classic approach into a more dynamic one. This opens up the possibility to take into consideration influences from the production and computation at an early stage of the design process. The content of this paper is a three-stage approach for the developing of support systems for a knowledge-based safeguarding in the design process. This method has been developed as part of researches of supporting methods for simulations during the design phase. Accordingly, the focus is still on the interface of CAD-CAE. The method is divided into three parts: the knowledge acquisition, the system design and the knowledge implementation into the CAD System. The approach will be applied in a case study, which focuses on an integrated simulation strategy for injection moulded parts.

Keywords: Computer Aided Design (CAD), Integrated product development, Systems Engineering (SE), Knowledge-Based Engineering (KBE), Injection-moulded part design
