Unformatted text preview: The type of analysis work that is involved in the design process is stress analysis, interference checking or kinematic analysis. Also there are software packages that allow a virtual prototype to be created, optimization algorithms can be used to create a better design and finally a design document is created to specify construction methods, materials and machinery programming. 4) What are the roles of CAD tools in the design process? The roles of CAD tools in the design process are to define the geometry of design because it is essential to any part made and any activities made after the geometry has been made....
