Computer-Aided Engineering (CAE)

Definition - What does Computer-Aided Engineering (CAE) mean?

Computer-aided engineering (CAE) is the process of solving engineering problems through the use of sophisticated, interactive graphical software.

CAE is one of the leading softwares employed by manufacturing organizations to mass produce products in a factory-based environment. It allows for more computations than is possible by hand, especially when it is coupled with optimization systems.

Techopedia explains Computer-Aided Engineering (CAE)

A CAE program is a mathematical model written in a programming language using a set of algortihms that define the manufacturing processes.

The process starts by first defining the analysis of the mathematical phenomenon. Next, the equations have to be defined. Finally, a model of physical configuration is created.This model may consist of 2-D or 3-D figures/shapes/curves/surfaces. This model is than applied to an actual production mehanism to design and develop the product.

Computer aided engineering is complemented by computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing.
