  2.  CAD/CAM = Computer Aided Design/ Computer Aided Manufacturing  It is the technology concerned with the use of computers to perform design and manufacturing functions 2
  3.  CAD can be defined as the use of computer systems to perform certain functions in the design process  CAM is the use of computer systems to plan, manage and control the operations of manufacturing plant through either direct or indirect computer interface with the plant’s production resources 3
  4. From CAM definition, the application of CAM falls into two broad categories: 1. Computer monitoring and control 4 Computer Process Process data Control signals Computer Process Process data

  22. Automation can be defined as the technology concerned with the application of complex mechanical, electronic, and computer-based systems in the operation and control of manufacturing systems. 22
  23. 23 Types of Manufacturing Systems 1. Continuous-flow processes. Continuous dedicated production of large amount of bulk product. Continuous manufacturing is represented by chemicals, plastics, petroleum, and food industries. 2. Mass production of discrete products. Dedicated production of large quantities of one product (with perhaps limited model variations). Examples include automobiles, appliances and engine blocks. 3. Batch production. Production of medium lot sizes of the same product. The lot may be produced once or repeated periodically. Examples: books, clothing and certain industrial machinery. 4. Job-shop production. Production of low quantities, often one of a kind, of specialized products. The products are often customized and technologically complex. Examples: prototypes, aircraft, machine tools and other equipment.

  26.  Greater flexibility  Reduced lead times  Reduced inventories  Increased Productivity  Improved customer service  Improved quality  Improved communications with suppliers 26 • Better product design • Greater manufacturing control • Supported integration • Reduced costs • Increased utilization • Reduction of machine tools • Less floor space
  27.  Computer-integrated manufacturing (CIM) is the manufacturing approach of using computers to control the entire production process  This integration allows individual processes to exchange info with each other and initiate actions  Through the computers integration, manufacturing can be faster and less error-prone, although the main advantage is the ability to create automated manufacturing processes  Typically CIM relies on closed-loop control processes, based on real-time input from sensors  It is also known as flexible design and manufacturing 27
  28.  CIM reduces the human component of manufacturing and thereby relieves the process of its slow, expensive and error-prone component  In a CIM system functional areas such as design, analysis, planning, purchasing, cost accounting, inventory control, and distribution are linked through the computer with factory floor functions such as materials handling and management, providing direct control and monitoring of all the operations. 28

  30.  As a method of manufacturing, three components distinguish CIM from other manufacturing methodologies: › Means for data storage, retrieval, manipulation and presentation › Mechanisms for sensing state and modifying processes › Algorithms for uniting the data processing component with the sensor/modification component 30
  31.  Manufacturing engineers are required to achieve the following objectives to be competitive in a global context › Reduction in inventory › Lower the cost of the product › Reduce waste › Improve quality › Increase flexibility in manufacturing to achieve immediate and rapid response to:  Product & Production changes  Process & Equipment change  Change of personnel 31
  32. Integration of technologies brings following benefits: 1. Creation of a truly interactive system that enables manufacturing functions to communicate easily with other relevant functional units 2. Accurate data transferability among manufacturing plant or subcontracting facilities at implant or diverse locations 3. Faster responses to data-changes for manufacturing flexibility 4. Increased flexibility towards introduction of new products 5 Improved accuracy and quality in the manufacturing process 32
