This paper presents an approach of integration between multiple analysis tools that covers several engineering disciplines, used for robot design and optimization. There are three main components in this approach namely a highly flexible geometric model, a parametric dynamic simulation model, and a framework for integration of the models and execution of an optimization process through a user friendly interface. To illustrate the presented methodology an integrated analysis tool for an industrial robot is developed combining dynamic and geometric models in a parametric design approach. An optimization case is conducted to visualize the automation capabilities of the proposed framework, and enhance the early design phases for industrial robots.
