The development of systematic methods for materials and process selection is a relatively new field. The variety of materials and processes available to the engineer, as well as the complexity of the set of requirements encountered in industrial situations, are the driving forces behind the development of software aiming at the guidance of the designer. Born as pedagogical tools, such software, tailored for a given class of materials or of applications, has now in certain cases reached a degree of specialization that is mature and applicable to the industrial design process.
