    There is a belief in certain sectors of education that it is unnecessary and too expensive to include CADCAM material in existing engineering courses. This paper attempts to dispel this `head-in-the-sand¿ attitude and recommends a way forward for further and higher education to meet the immediate needs of industry, without necessarily requiring a massive dose of capital investment.

    IBM is committed to computer assistance in the design, manufacture and test of printed circuit boards. As a result of the company's worldwide organisation, it is impossible to share databases between development and manufacturing systems. However, the use of formal data interfaces enables the integration of the separate processes of design, manufacture and test into what is effectively a single CADMAT system. View full abstract»

    The introduction of an integrated CADCAM system to a manufacturing enterprise for genuine three-dimensional work is a complex matter and is rarely investigated thoroughly. However, if properly implemented, such a system gives the designer the opportunity to design exactly what is to be manufactured and enables him to accept responsibility for the finished product.

    Computers are now being used extensively in manufacturing industry not only for administrative purposes but also to control engineering processes. Software-based tools are vital to the process of design and are essential in the exploitation of semiconductor technology. Those computer-aided design tools which produce visible evidence of design, in drawings and photographic artwork, address only one aspect of a much wider subject which calls for an integrated strategy.

    Before the application of computer-aided design to the engineering operations of Babcock-Bristol Ltd., a supplier of process control and instrumentation systems, the company's business was being obstructed by delays and errors in the production of drawings. However, the company's own familiarity with computer technology helped it to select, commission and successfully operate a turnkey CAD system, which has proved to be of significant value in over five years of operation.
