    There are no universal solutions or standard procedures for computer integrated manufacturing; rather it is what each company makes of it. This paper outlines ideas from the development of a CIM strategy at Mars Electronics, and argues that success in implementation depends less on the technology, which is generally already in existence, than on management commitment and a clear vision of the comp...

    Investment appraisal is an essential, and integral, part of the process of specifying a CADCAM system. This paper shows how the problems of evaluation can be overcome, and lists of the main areas of costs and savings are provided so that companies can identify their own requirements. The effect of expanding CAD into CADCAM is discussed, and it is suggested that CAD and CAM have to be dealt with se... View full abstract»

    The databases of contemporary CAD systems cannot be used to drive most CAE and CAM systems in an automated manner since CAD systems do not produce a complete product definition. The information that is supported is in the form of low-level details, from which higher-level information such as form features cannot be obtained easily. This paper describes the functional requirements of a system that ... View full abstract»

    Bus timing emulation is widely used for the production testing of bus-structured printed circuit boards. However, with the ongoing advance of bus-structured technology, continued successful use of the technique will require new facilities for, and approaches to, test hardware, fixturing and design for testability View full abstract»

  • CAD data communications-an update

    Publication Year: 1988, Page(s):5 - 8
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (420 KB)

    With the widespread use of CAD systems in industry, transfer of CAD data is a problem of increasing importance. This paper considers alternative data transfer methods between supplier companies and main manufacturers in the motor industry, although the procedures and options described are applicable to other industries. Results obtained from attempted data transfer via magnetic tapes containing tw... View full abstract»
