  • Integrating the engineering and production functions in a manufacturing company

    Publication Year: 1992
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (121 KB)

    The aim of the authors is to concentrate on the problems associated with the interface between design engineering and production, and to examine some of their implications for the integration of CAE and CAPM as part of a business strategy. The benefits of integrating these functions as part of a coherent strategy depend on the business context, for example the market-imposed need for frequent desi... View full abstract»

    The BoM (bill-of-materials) which is essentially a structured parts list, is generated automatically by most modern CAD systems and is used by the CAPM system to explode the master production schedule (MPS) into both gross and net component requirements. The role of the bill-of-materials is central to the integration of computer-aided design and computer-aided production management systems. Increa... View full abstract»

  • CAE and CAPM: partners or alternatives?

    Publication Year: 1992, Page(s):71 - 74
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (430 KB)

    Computer-aided engineering and computer-aided production management are seen as vital components of computer-integrated manufacturing. But do these technologies complement or conflict? The authors set out the arguments and look at the supporting evidence. They examine the design function and the impact CAE has had on it, and discuss ways in which the complexity generated by the CAE process may be ... View full abstract»

  • The CAPM/CAE interface within CIM system approaches in medium-sized companies

    Publication Year: 1992, Page(s):75 - 81
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (769 KB)

    Approaches to CIM system development in medium-sized UK manufacturing companies are discussed. Alternative views of CIM are presented, illustrated by case studies of medium-sized companies engaged in linking their CAE and CAPM systems. The conclusion reached is that the most realistic path towards CIM for this size of company is one determined by a business-oriented justification for investing in ... View full abstract»

  • CAD/CAM and DNC links as a strategy for manufacture: implications for CAPM

    Publication Year: 1992, Page(s):82 - 87
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (562 KB)

    Owing to international competition, an increased emphasis placed on the role of manufacturing, as companies will only remain competitive if their manufacturing systems are developed to satisfy business and marketing needs. The authors consider the role of computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacture (CAM) within a direct numerical control system, which has been successfully installed...
