To comprehend what we all know and concentrate on what's to be identified is an important method of treating CAD/CAM matters. The problem for we all attracted to CAD/CAM and engineering info dealing with is to below­ stand what we all know and what we have to learn about state-of-the-art and tomorrow's know-how, to trace the explosive improvement of our box and its broadening variety of functions, to type during the info which compete for our cognizance, and to understand underlying tendencies. A key improvement long ago 12 months used to be the speedy and common attractiveness by way of all consumer segments of non-public computer-based CAD/CAM workstations, coupled with frequent use of software program applications, either these constructed for PC-based workstations and others switched over from major­ body and mini structures to be used on PC-based or 32-bit workstations. If this pattern maintains for a couple of extra years, up to 900/0 of all layout paintings might be entire on complicated types of PC-based workstations. Many software program structures owners unknown until eventually lately to the PC-based CAD/CAM neighborhood have now come to dominate the market-companies comparable to Autodesk, Chessell-Robocom, destiny internet, T&W structures, P-CAD, Cascade, 4-D pictures, CADAM, Wang & Hornbuckle, and greater than 20 different businesses who promote PC-based CAD/CAM software.

Example text

Manual modifications that reflect system interconnection can be tedious, but with computer graphics the process will be expedited and the EDP Architecture will become a dynamic tool that can reflect transitional impacts from subschema level through functional level in a timely fashion. This allows the EDP Planning Organization to answer "what if" questions concerning downstream impact if the generation of certain data is eliminated or the format is modified. with the old method of manually drawing system interrelationships, the input was usually a hand-drawn sketch prepared by the EDP planner, which was then redrawn into an understandable format that met corporate standards.

It was also used to size and layout administrative space requirements, support systems and building elements. TOPES was not a commercially available system. At the time of initial development, because of limited display capabilities, TOPES was developed around storage tube technology to accommodate the large number of drawing elements required to support space planning. However, high resolution refresh and raster scan terminals allowed TOPES to achieved device independence and it can be access from a variety of terminals.

What are the operational costs of the existing system? How extensive is the EDP Architecture you intend to create? Does it support only one department, or does it encompass the entire EDP resources of your entire company? Will your EDP Architecture include only the function and system level? Or will it branch into schemas and subschemata for functions and systems? After investigating the capabilities and limitations of your existing CAD system you may decide that it will meet your requirements or a majority of them effectively.
