Knowledgeware in CATIA/Digital Project (PowerCopies, UserFeatures, KnowledgePatterns, etc.) provides a framework for capturing design intent and reusing information.

Linear Congruential Generators (LCGs) are systems for generating pseudorandom lists of numbers. This example uses a Knowledge Pattern to recursively generate sphere geometry, positioning the spheres relative to the previous one based on the generated pseudorandom number.
