    This paper provides a review of some of the major developments in computer-aided part programming from the very early days of the subject up to the present. These developments, while difficult to categorise, have been split into three groups for the purpose of presentation, starting with the early system developments, continuing with the part programming developments during the 1970s and concluding with the recent system developments.

    Too often an engineer comes up with proposals that are sound from a technical point of view but are not put into effect because of the engineer's weakness in management and communication skills. Teaching these skills is not straightforward: they do not lend themselves fully to conventional methods of teaching. A novel approach based on case study techniques has been used successfully at Coventry (Lanchester) Polytechnic's Department of Combined Engineering in its CNAA Postgraduate Diploma course in CAE.

    A wide ranging computer applications project has been underway since 1980 in the Reprocessing Engineering Division of British Nuclear Fuels. The scope of the project is indicated briefly, and some managerial implications of absorbing rapid system change are considered in order to provide a basis for discussion of possible future developments affecting professional careers in computing and management.
