Introduction-CAD/CAM/CAE
Computer Aided Design - CAD
CAD- is technology concerned with using computer systems toassist in the
creation,
 
modification
,
analysis
and
optimization
of a design.Any computer program that embodies
computer graphics
 
and an
application program
facilitating engineering functions in designprocess can be classified as CAD software. The most basic role of CAD is to define the
geometry of design,
a
mechanical assembly
,
an architectural structure, anelectronic circuit, a building layout
etc. The greatest benefits CAD systems are that they can saveconsiderable time and reduce errors caused by otherwise having to
redefine the geometry of the design from scratch everytime it is needed
.
 
Introduction
Computer Aided Manufacturing - CAM
CAM technology involves
computer systems
that
plan
,
manage
and
control
the manufacturing operationsthrough computer interface with the plant’s productionresources.One of the most important areas of 
CAM is numericalcontrol (NC
). This is a
technique of usingprogrammed instructions to control a machine tool
 that
cuts
,
mills, grinds, punches
or
turns
raw stockinto a finished part.Another significant CAM function is in the
programmingof robots
.
Process planning is also a target of computer automation
