The Need for Data Base Management Systems in CAD/CAM 831309
A CAD/CAM system has the potential to save time and money in two areas. It can perform design and manufacturing tasks more quickly, and use its stored information as a starting point for new designs. To efficiently and consistently find stored information as a starting point requires a database management system.
This paper explains database management systems as opposed to standard file storage, and shows their importance to CAD/CAM systems.
