Extension of functional possibilities of tools is one of the main ways to increase the maintenance property of technical means. It especially actually in modern agricultural production, based on precision agriculture technologies, where using technical means must provide: reduction of cost, conservation of ground fertility, saving energy-resources, improvement labor conditions, and increase machines capacity. One of efficient way to solve these problems is using geometric modeling methods and systems in designing technical means. Geometric modeling, as one of the varieties of the synthetic methods of design, is a theoretical base for different technologies of these methods, like industrial design and CAD technologies. In this chapter, as examples, the following case studies will be considered: development of multifunctional mold board by geometric modeling, for increasing its maintenance property; integration role of CAD technologies in PLM, including in maintenance management; and visualization of production design process of technical means according to maintenance criterions.
