    Results are reported of an exploratory investigation into the managerial problems of integrating computer-aided design (broadly construed to include engineering design and drafting), and computer-aided manufacturing (encompassing machine control, materials handling, manufacturing scheduling, planning and administration, testing and quality assurance). The focus is on engineering, design, fabricati... View full abstract»

    A common job design model of the integrated factory is outlined, and the extent to which international experiences in computer-aided design (CAD) use conform to the model is assessed. With particular focus on experiences in Australia, it is argued that the variety of types and uses of CAD undermine any simple unlinear theory of necessary or appropriate work organization for CAD. It is concluded, h... View full abstract»

    A model is developed for the analysis of factors influencing organizational and technological changes associated with CAD and CAD/CAM (computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacture). Different pressures for adoption and the sociopolitical environment of the organization and related to managerial strategies and their impact on skills, tasks, training, and changes in work organization. Opportunit... View full abstract»

    Prior research on the social impacts of computer-aided design (CAD) has treated nonusers, those still using manual methods, as control groups to which users are compared. The assumption is that nonusers' worklives are essentially unchanged by the implementation of CAD. It is argued that nonusers can also be affected by their organization's transition to CAD. It is hypothesized that CAD has primari... View full abstract»

    In this case study the introduction of computer-aided design (CAD) in an engineering company was analyzed. The process of change as well as repercussions of the new technology on work organization and communication patterns within the company were studied. The designers has received the new technology favorably and were even impatient about the pace of change. As the development of the system was ... View full abstract»
