The evolution of computer technology in the last decade produced a new computer category: the graphical workstation. These high performance computers, with multitasking graphical operating systems can increase the productivity of optical engineers significantly, however, the development of an optical design software which utilizes the extraordinary possibilities of these new environments requires special considerations. In this paper a new, highly interactive optical design software is introduced together with some useful methods which support the early stages of the design process.
