The design of aerospace vehicles relies extensively on numerical tools. Due to the intrinsic multi-disciplinary character of such design, the inputs (aero, mission, structure, weight estimates, etc.) originate from different tools. In order to complete a design cycle interaction between the tools is required and is achieved through scripting. For rapid design analyses, a level of automation is needed in which the software developer plays a central role.
