The automation concept is being applied to many areas as the automation system in the manufacturing field works more efficiently. Automation of the design process is also very important for the reduction of the entire engineering cost, and can be achieved by an excellent design process and software development. Design axioms have been announced as a general theoretical framework for all design fields. Application of the design axioms is investigated, and automation is obtained by computer programs. The design process can be analyzed and newly defined to satisfy the axioms. A software system can be designed according to the newly defined design process. In this research, a conventional design process for a TV glass design has been improved by an axiomatic approach, and a software system is designed for the automation of the design process. It is found that the conventional process is coupled, and the coupling causes inefficiencies. A new process is established by the application of axioms. A software design is conducted based on the new process and software development is carried out according to the software design. The developed software is exploited well in the real design.
