  • The CADCAM Association - a focus point

    Publication Year: 1986, Page(s):123 - 124
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1140 KB)

    Computer-aided design and manufacturing is the intersection of many concepts and it itself cuts across many engineering, design and other related disciplines. Furthermore, CADCAM requires a strong interaction between users, suppliers and academia, because of its rate of growth, the development of new concepts and the massive training and education problem. It was these aspects that led to the form... View full abstract»

  • CAM-I-its history, activities and achievements

    Publication Year: 1986, Page(s):125 - 128
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (769 KB)

    CAM-I's history goes back to the early 1960s when numerical control was first utilised in industry. Originating from the aerospace industries, a co-operative research and development programme called the APT Long Range Programme for programming numerically controlled machine tools was set up and supported by many major corporations in the US and Europe. In the APT Long Range Programme, activity wa... View full abstract»

  • Product data mangement - with solid modelling

    Publication Year: 1986, Page(s):129 - 132
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1346 KB)

    This paper presents the concept of a product data management (PDM) system - a computer-based system created to manage data related to the many products of a manufacturing enterprise. Solid modelling has a special relationship to the PDM system, and this is also discussed. The PDM system provides reliable, quick and easy to use access to all relevant files for designers, engineers, manufacturing en... View full abstract»

  • Integrating solid modelling with finite-element analysis

    Publication Year: 1986, Page(s):133 - 137
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (763 KB)

    This paper presents an approach to the integration of computer-aided design and finite-element analysis. Starting with a solid modelling system for the definition of the desired structure/component, a modified octree sub-division technique is used for the automatic generation of the finite element meshes. This mesh information, together with the material properties and boundary conditions, is subs... View full abstract»

  • CADCAM in Japan

    Publication Year: 1986, Page(s):138 - 142
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1779 KB)

    Japanese use of CADCAM has progressed quickly in the past five years. The majority of the installed base by value still comprises imported turnkey systems. However, the Japanese demand for quality and increased automation means that Japanese companies want more from CADCAM than standard products can offer. In response, Japanese distributors and suppliers have been increasing their share in the cur... View full abstract»

  • Review of software tools to support computer-aided testing of digital circuits

    Publication Year: 1986, Page(s):143 - 147
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2147 KB)

    This paper reviews the requirements and status of software to support the generation of test vectors for a digital circuit and the subsequent conversion into a working test program on ATE. The paper focuses on: language systems to describe circuit topology, circuit behaviour and waveforms; test pattern generation techniques; evaluation by fault simulation; postprocessing to ATE; and engineering wo...

  • ATE systems¿current trends and integration into CAE environments

    Publication Year: 1986, Page(s):148 - 154
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2358 KB)

    With the current industry trend towards the extensive use of LSI and VLSI integrated circuits, testing costs are changing from the traditional 5-10% to as much as 45%¿and even more in some cases. The capabilities, limitations and costs of LSI and VLSI ATE for integrated circuits are consequently having a major impact on engineers and engineering management. At the same time the market is moving t... View full abstract»

  • Surfaces for irregular regions

    Publication Year: 1986, Page(s):155 - 158
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (446 KB)

    Surface modelling is an accepted part of CADCAM, and there is a wide range of systems offering the facility. The mathematics underlying the surfaces tends to differ from system to system, but there is an overall similarity in that most surfaces are based on a rectangular parametric grid. While this is the most practical way of creating surfaces for general use it makes them intrinsically unsuited ... View full abstract»

    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1767 KB)

    In the heavy/medium manufacturing environment, the generation of NC part programs is a prolific and productive element of CAM. With the increasing use of computer-aided drafting a more effective and automatic method for the generation and transcription of manufacturing instructions and information has become available. The creation and maintenance of a computer graphics database, containing master... View full abstract»
