They then took their preliminary design data to program ENGINE to iterate to an optimum solution. ... Labor intensive manual calculations formerly limited the number and complexity of the problems that can reasonably be assigned in a term or semester. Thus the ... Rapid calculation of mechanism characteristics allows students to compare numerous linkage designs and iterate to more optimal solutions. Thus ...
