CAE - computer-aided engineering. Involves use of specialized computer software to assist the engineer work in the field of design. Additionally it helps in making calculations using finite element method (FEM), boundary element method (MEB) and other analyses. The advantage of the use of CAE systems is the ability to know the behavior of the object in actual situation under the influence of: load, vibration, temperature, etc. using mathematical models and computer simulations.
