||A computer program is being elaborated as an aid in designing assembled parts whose assembly presents high degrees of complexity.
The newly created program, once incorporated in the CAD sector to increase its potential applications, will facilitate the analysis of
reciprocal relationhips between pieces of the assemblage; this will enhance optimum decision-making in terms of geometric and
functional characteristics with respect to the previously conceived assembly sequence.
The program will automatically create images in three different ways: instantaneous images of assembly stages for each piece of the
assembled part; exploded axonometric view of the whole structure with indications of necessary procedures for inserting or connecting
the assembled part;sequenced procedures for connecting the assembled part.
The different methods of visualization listed above will allow for project verification of the part by means of simultaneous visual
analysis of the images and rapid updating should any changes in their properties arise.
These types of visualization include simulations of piece by piece assemblage, which will facilitate an "optimal assemblage", meaning a
set of components which are assembled in a specific sequence according to their "structural compatibility" and taking into
consideration "particular assembly requirements".
