    Emerging trends that will combine to yield productive workstation environments are discussed. In the author's view, interactive graphics, as the primary man-machine interface, will continue to drive the use of workstations. Distributions processing will make workstations flexible and cost-effective enough for a variety of applications. Implementing standards will ensure configurability. Finally, s...

    The author discusses the features needed for what might be called distributed design, a concept that must take hold before significant integrated manufacturing activities can occur. In addition to discussing hardware and software technologies, he reviews current market forces and investigates the key elements that may enable graphics workstations to contribute this design concept.

    The development of work station requirements at the authors' firm is discussed. The engineering workstation that they developed in close cooperation with the vendor is a desktop machine with the capabilities of a minicomputer. It is not a dedicated word processor, nor purely an office automation machine, nor a CAD system. However, it is capable of doing word processing, can participate in office a... View full abstract»

    The author presents: (1) reasons why a predictable level of performance can enhance the productivity of system users; and (2) an analysis of the factors that can impact performance. He also explains why a system can look very good under certain circumstances and yet fail to live up to expectations upon installation in a real-world environment. View full abstract»

    The International Monetary Fund has undertaken a project to develop a prototype economist's workstation. Interviews revealed first that the workstation must have facilities for the acquisition, analysis, and display of economic and financial data. In addition, the work load and travel schedule of desk economists require that the workstation support the rapid prototyping of economic analyses and be... View full abstract»

    An algorithm is presented for approximating all the intersection curves between a plane and an arbitrary parametric surface patch. This is accomplished by a two-stage recursive procedure that simultaneously generates approximations to the curve(s) in 3-D space and the associated pre-image curve(s) in 2-D parameter space. The algorithm provides an accurate mathematical representation based on a tol... View full abstract»
