Design automation in the component-parts industry from purchase inquiry to finished product delivered is described. The computerized process simulates human decision-makers, eliminates bottlenecks, and frees human decision-makers from routine work. Fuzzy set analysis is used in the early stages of a design process. Its language describes well the imprecise or blurred specifications at the initial phase of an engineering design. The mathematics of fuzzy-set analysis leads naturally to a process which is similar to heuristic selection for realizing the product selection and design specification program (PSDS) in the computerized process.
