The CAD-based design phase is characterized by a cooperation of manufacturer and supplier, which often use CAD software with different versions or even different vendors. In this context, the paper focusses on the development and application of knowledge-based engineering (KBE) within multi-CAD environment. Usually, knowledge-based design (KBD) methods are developed within and for specific CAD systems, respectively specific software configurations or releases. Engineering and component supplier companies are faced with the problem that car manufacturers (OEM) work with different CAD software solutions. A multi-CAD strategy is able to support the handling and organization of different CAD-related project environments, especially in view of knowledge-based and automated design applications, as well as data management. The presented approach provides a platform for the efficient development of KBD applications for multi-CAD environments.
