In today's fast paced world, CAD/CAM systems have become an essential element in manufacturing companies through out the world. Technology and communication are changing rapidly, driving business methods for organizations and requiring capitalization in order to maintain competitiveness. Knowledge prior to investing into a system is crucial in order to maximize the benefits received from changing CAD/CAM systems.
The CAD /CAM market place has seen a significant new advance in the technology every 7 years and is ripe for the emergence of a major new development. During the past 20 years, the computer-aided design (CAD) industry has simplified software user interfaces to enable engineers to design products more quickly and efficiently.
The purpose of the session was to discuss how CAD software might be made more productive in the future. During the past 20 years, the computer-aided design (CAD) industry has simplified software user interfaces to enable engineers to design products more quickly and efficiently.
CAD is sometimes translated as "computer-assisted design", "computer-aided drafting", or a similar phrase. A related acronym, CADD, stands for "computeraided design and drafting". All these latter terms are essentially synonymous, and
refer to the designing and technical drawing of various projects on a computer rather than a traditional drawing board. The spectrum of engineering projects commonly created with computer-aided drafting is broad, and include architectural
drafting, mechanical drafting, electrical drafting, and other forms of design communication. Today they constitute part of a broader definition of computeraided design.
