1. A non-transitory computer readable medium having computer executable instructions for designing and manufacturing a system having components designed to particular specifications that when executed by a processor performs the following steps comprising:

  • accessing a visual representation of one or more components of the system;

    obtaining geometrical information for one or more components included in the visual representation;

    associating one or more property values with one or more of the components of said system or with other elements created from the geometrical information;

    mapping one or more of the components of the geometrical information to a plurality of standard fittings as a function of;

    (1) standards information including (1A) information specific to each of the plurality of standard fittings and (1B) fabrication information of each of the plurality of specific standard fittings;

    (2) the geometrical information; and

    (3) the associated property values; and

    generating an output comprising;

    the standard fittings;

    the fabrication information; and

    a three-dimensional representation of the visual representation,whereby one or more components of the visual representation have been mapped to standard fittings and include fabrication information in the output.
