Computer applications have become routine in engineering: examples are laboratory automation, NC machining, CAD/CAM-CIM techniques and finite element methods. Computer-readable data on materials for these applications are processed in factual materials databanks. The great variety of engineering activities have stimulated an evolution towards different types of data systems. There are trends towards their association with knowledge processing, the integration of public databanks into networks, and the integration of private databanks into CAE systems. International standardization is in strong demand.
