Virtual Laboratory Computer-Aided Design Access Methods Distributed System
Institute of Information Theories and Applications FOI ITHEA
In the article it is considered preconditions and main principles of creation of virtual laboratories for
computer-aided design, as tools for interdisciplinary researches. Virtual laboratory, what are offered, is worth to
be used on the stage of the requirements specification or EFT-stage, because it gives the possibility of fast
estimating of the project realization, certain characteristics and, as a result, expected benefit of its applications.
Using of these technologies already increase automation level of design stages of new devices for different
purposes. Proposed computer technology gives possibility to specialists from such scientific fields, as chemistry,
biology, biochemistry, physics etc, to check possibility of device creating on the basis of developed sensors. It lets
to reduce terms and costs of designing of computer devices and systems on the early stages of designing, for
example on the stage of requirements specification or EFT-stage. An important feature of this project is using the
advanced multi-dimensional access method for organizing the information base of the Virtual laboratory.
