Computer-Aided Design (CAD) software vendors are quickly recognizing the tremendous potentia1 of the Internet for connecting distributed tools and users This has produced a tremendous investment in new Internet technologies, such as the World Wide Web (WWW), plug-ins, and Java as enabling mechanisms for next-generation systems. Deploying these next-generation tools may likely require development of pre-competitive standards and research. This paper presents an overvievr of the technology and market trends in Internet-enabled ComputerAided Design and Computer-Aided Engineering (CAD/CAE). We describe several of the emerging strategies, some of the tools that will leverage this technology, and hypothesize how CAD systems are likely to change in the near future to take advantage of the Internet.
