An interface integrating design and mfg in small size companies
Design tasks attempt to ensure that products meet market demands. Many programs have been developed to assist in the design task. Rarely do these programs permit to exchange of information with other departments without restrictions. This work deals with the development of an interface to extract information (e.g. the bills of materials), in a CAD (Computer Aided Design) environment. In addition, the materials are organised through MRP (Materials Requirements Planning) system.
