Moulds are complex devices and their quotation is one of the most risky tasks in mould industry. In this paper a digital work environment based on a computer assisted mould quotation tool is proposed in which all the relevant information is quickly available to assist a robust and rapid quotation. The tool involves a new way to directly access past quotations, designs and even manufacturing data based on the similarity of mould geometry and mould attributes. It applies new 2D/3D design concepts where sketches and text attributes are used to search for and access similar moulds. The main results from the analysis of mould quotation procedures and a preliminary tool prototype are presented.
