"as computer technology and its associated computational method advance, the use of 3-d computational fluid dynamics to designe and analyse positive displacement machinery working process can be split into four phases."

Would you please the explain the part "its associated computational method"? I cannot understand the use of "associated" there.

It should make sense to you. Have you looked it up yet? What did you find?

Computers use certain methods to calculate things. Different systems may use different methods.

I think associated methods here means the methods depending on computer technology. So what do you natives think, do you agree with me?
