Computer-Integrated Manufacturing

  • S. A. Meguid


In an integrated CAD/CAM system, a central unified data base is used to hold the design, analysis and manufacturing information. This means that the information is consistent throughout the Company. Once the product has been designed and analysed, much manufacturing information can be generated automatically.
