The assembly of any manufactured product involves joining. This paper describes ways of selecting processes for joining. The method allows discrimination of the joint geometry, joint loading, material, and other attributes of the joint itself, identifying the subset of available processes capable of meeting a given set of design constraints. A relational database containing data-tables for joining processes, materials to be joined, and joint geometry and mode of loading, allows the attributes of each of these to be stored in an appropriate format, and permits links to be created between those that are related. A search engine isolates the processes that meet design requirements on material, joint geometry and loading. The method is illustrated in Part 2 by case studies, utilising software that embodies the method.
