Integrating CAD/CAM Systems into Product Development 961842

Leveraging the full potential of a CAD/CAM system in the product development process is the primary focus of this paper. The role of new generation CAD/CAM systems in efficiently creating product data and facilitating concurrent activities of cross-functional product development teams is also discussed.
Process mapping techniques have been suggested to evaluate the extent of CAD/CAM integration into the company's product development process, and redefine its application so that the full potential is realized.
A roadmap to improve CAD/CAM integration with product development is recommended, which will promote efficient creation and utilization of product data by all the functional groups involved.
