During process of product development and design, it is important to keep production cost as small as possible. One way to reduce the production cost is by degrading the quality of the product, which is “worst-case” scenario and it should not be used. Another way is to turn to the application of new knowledge and insights, which enables better utilization of resources and processes. New knowledge may include new materials and/or new technologies, but may also include new ways and methods of product development and design. The increasing complexity of products, the use of new materials, methodologies and technologies, require increasing computer support for the design process. Because of this, there is a need for a better scientific approach and a better understanding of the design process using a number of software design tools, interaction between these tools and better collaboration between designers. This paper describes the process of developing the knowledge based intelligent integrated computer aided design (IICAD) system for the calculation, dimensioning and development of a bridge crane model with two main supports. This methodology of IICAD software development can be used to develop numerous other IICAD computer systems for various fields of engineering. Main contribution of this paper is above mentioned and presented methodology. Also, goal of this paper is to prove that standard computer aided design (CAD) systems, needs to be expanded with this knowledge based intelligent integrated systems to achieve higher levels of performance.

Keywords: integrated intelligent CAD system, design, calculation, bridge crane, main girder.
