    The application areas for vision equipment in manufacturing are numerous, although many obstacles remain in widely applying this technology. This article considers some of the problems of using visual information in computer integrated manufacturing systems and introduces the concept of a multi-layered model for vision which can be adopted to simplify integration and installation.

    The educational provision today for the needs of tomorrow's industry requires the formulation of a cost-effective strategy. The ideal of an all-embracing, flexible and responsive system, put to good educational effect by hundreds of students with a diversity of needs and open to upgrade is one towards which the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Portsmouth Polytechnic has striven. This paper ... View full abstract»

    Developing CAD systems for the design and layout of process plant involves an investment of millions of pounds. Today the proven benefit of using such systems is apparent, but without commitment and foresight from software developers such tools may never be seen in the market. One such product, PDMS, was a joint development between CADCentre, Isopipe and Akzo Engineering, started in 1974 and first... View full abstract»

    This paper reflects upon the implementation of a CADCAM system undertaken as the central theme of a teaching company programme, in which an academic institution collaborates with a local company to implement some aspect of advanced manufacturing technology. The paper describes the design and manufacturing procedures in operation prior to the implementation, proceeds through the actual implementati... View full abstract»
