An approach synthesized with comprehensive evaluation & decision, rule-based reasoning, case-based reasoning and 3D parametric model are proposed to solve the problems of automation of the conceptual design of the mechanical products with middle complex level. A prototype software system for automatic rifle layout design was implemented using the object-oriented language — C++ based on this approach. The results running the prototype software system can well meet the demands of conceptual design of these complex level products.
