    The advent of inexpensive, powerful, reliable and easily accessible microcomputers is changing the design of both electronic circuits and electronic systems. It is now well recognised that CAD tools can be used to speed up circuit design in the engineering process. The authors provide an overview of commercially available personal computer based circuit analysis and design packages, and report pro... View full abstract»

    Both the changing demands of the market and keen competition among manufacturers call for a more flexible approach to manufacturing. Adopting conventional computing methods is not adequate to meet the sophisticated needs of the modern manufacturing industry. The authors describe the approach of applying artificial intelligence techniques to process planning. An analogy between artificial intellige... View full abstract»

    Robot simulation and off-line programming seem likely to have an increasingly important role in the evolution of CIM facilities. The authors consider the capabilities and shortcomings of the current generation of off-line programming and graphical simulation systems. Methods of overcoming problems associated with calibration, lack of 'user friendliness' and integration within manufacturing systems... View full abstract»
