Design is at least as much a process of discovery as it is a purposeful manipulation of facts into a contemplated solution. Although the aspect of design which involves discovery can perhaps never be fully automated, we can expect to build systems to aid or to automate various problem solving aspects of design. The concept of an intelligent CAD system as the computer side of an effective human-computer team working on a design problem is by now well established. Such a team should relieve human designers from the routine and more mundane tasks encountered in the course of a design, allowing them to concentrate on more creative aspects. A conventional CAD system merely documents the outcome of a design, while an intelligent CAD system makes a meaningful contribution to the actual progress of a design. This volume contains the results of the IFIP workshop on intelligent CAD. Included are reports from the chairpersons of the three subgroups and plenary sessions, invited papers, and papers selected from contributions. The selected papers were first reviewed by the program committee and chairpersons and then revised based on their comments. Together with the proceedings from the previous two workshops, this volume contains an exhaustive documentation of the development of intelligent CAD.
