ICAD is a knowledge-based CAD system.
Knowledge Technologies International (KTI) is the world’s leading provider of object-oriented engineering software solutions for the aerospace, automotive, industrial equipment, and construction industries. KTI chose the Allegro CL development environment for its highly successful ICAD System, used by such prominent customers as General Motors, Ford, Jaguar, Mitsubishi, and Honda.
“The problems we solve,” explains KTI’s Vice President of Development Bob Phillips, “demand that we have a development tool that is scaleable, industrial-strength, and robust. Allegro CL has worked very well for us.”
“Previously we could analyze only two nose shapes on a new aircraft project because each one took 5 weeks,” explains Steve Allwright of British Aerospace. “Using ICAD we are now able to evaluate upwards of sixty-five shapes, because each one takes only 10 minutes.”
