A view on the role that computer algebra systems can play as a vital component in problem solving environments is presented. Special attention is given to their ability to assist in moving the production of numerical code to a higher level of abstraction. An example is used as an illustration. It underlines the need for interdisciplinary research in computational science. It also shows the challenging role of automated program generation in a computer algebra environment.
