    One of the obstacles to the successful application of computer technology to manufacturing is the failure of existing cost management practices to provide the financial information necessary for a company to manage the transition to automated manufacture. CAM-I's Cost Management System project aims to establish a standard body of cost management knowledge which will support the implementation of c... View full abstract»

    The basic installation of the hardware and software components of a CADCAM system forms only a small part of the overall implementation process. The real challenge facing most companies is the modification of the working environment; addressing the procedural, organisational and integration issues which will directly influence a successful implementation. This paper describes the methodology which... View full abstract»

    Although the solid model is recognised as the most complete representation of an object in a computer, there has been some hesitancy over its adoption among many designers. To overcome this reluctance and to allow solid modelling to be put to work productively, modellers need to be truly interactive with transparent user interfaces. View full abstract»

    Manufacturing defect analysers generally incorporate some form of self-learn capability, allowing board tests to be developed in as short a time as possible without the need for skilled programmers. Existing methods generally meet these two objectives but lack both fault coverage and component level diagnostics. Following a brief introduction to the use of manufacturing defect analysers, this pape... View full abstract»

  • A rationalised approach to the application of CAD within mechanical product design

    Publication Year: 1987 , Page(s): 213 - 216

    This paper reviews the nature of the product design process by focusing on the types of design that arise throughout the life cycle of an engineering product. It is proposed that considerations of `design by evolution¿¿ and `design by innovation¿¿ should be carefully assessed as fundamental criteria when formulating decisions on the adoption and implementation of CAD within mechanical product desi...
