We have presented some design suggestions for the CRIM and RTM process. The approach is by the use of moldability diagrams from which it is possible to define a set of conditions necessary to meet the process requirements. Diagrams were presented for the filling and curing steps. The conditions adopted in the process should fall inside both the filling and curing process windows. The design strategy presented should be considered as an initial stage in the definition of the process; control and optimization will require deeper understanding of the basic concepts of the operation.
