    Artificial intelligence tools have recently become a significant topic in many areas of engineering research. The use of computer-based decision support systems is potentially of great benefit in the complex task of process planning, both in terms of consistency of approach and in the reduction of manufacturing lead times. This paper discusses a problem-solving system which carries out process pla... View full abstract»

    The integration of hitherto separate aspects of traditional manufacturing presents a formidable task in the development of computer integrated manufacturing systems. It is a problem which needs to be approached from many different points of view, and this is reflected by the different backgrounds of the team participating in Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute's CIM Program, which has as one of its a...

    Robotics software integrated into a CADCAM system is a major step forward towards the planning and designing of manufacturing cells on a systems basis. Such is the appeal and commercial potential of this new software tool that already two major CADCAM vendors have marketable products, while others are announcing development plans. The real rewards will come when this software can be used to effect... View full abstract»

    The application of numerically controlled machine tools grouped in cells has proved effective in batch manufacture. Further advantages are gained by designing to suit such machines, making use of computer modelling and deriving, from the model, all the downstream data such as detailed drawings, machine drive tapes, production planning and machine simulations by means of suitable programs.

  • The selection, installation and operation of CAD systems

    Publication Year: 1984, Page(s):227 - 233

    An introduction is given to CAD in its various forms and the three stages of equipment selection, installation and operation are described. An attempt is made to illustrate the major pitfalls facing both management and design staff along the way, and it is hoped that this will help to save both time and money for potential users of CAD systems. Other aspects which arise from the increased use of t... View full abstract»
