IT in Manufacturing
  • The introduction of IT has had a huge impact on the manufacturing industries
  • Traditional ‘labour intensive’ industries (those which require a large workforce) now have a large degree of automation in producing their products
  • A modern company would now use IT in every stage of production and support areas

IT in Manufacturing
  • R&D
    • Research and Development uses computers from product design to simulation and testing (CAD)
  • Production and Manufacturing
    • Scheduling production times and the actual process uses computer controlled machines (CAM)
  • Administration
    • Factory (Plant) administration, office and personnel etc
  • Sales and Advertising
    • Dealer products databases, on-line catalogues, use of email to communicate with suppliers and customers.

CAD
  • CAD stands for ‘Computer Aided Design’
  • CAD is used for displaying and editing designs on the computer.
  • Calculations are often made.
  • CAD can be 2D or 3D (3 dimensional)
  • CAD outputs can be printed using a Plotter
  • CAD outputs can also be used as inputs for a CAM process

CAD requirements
  • The Research and Development team in an organisation tend to use CAD to design new products.
  • CAD requires monitors with high resolution 1024 – 4096 pixels.
  • CAD also requires large amounts of RAM to be able to process the images
  • CAD input can be via mouse, keyboard, but more often a graphics tablet is used.
  • CAD systems tend to be expensive
  • Designs can be produced quicker than by hand drawn methods.
the use of cad
The use of CAD
  • Interior design
    • Arranging furniture in a room.
    • This can be viewed from a number of angles
  • Car shapes and bodies as well as engines
    • In 3D the image can be rotated or viewed from different angles
  • Consumer electronic products (TVs and Video recorders)
    • Electronic Circuit boards
    • Testing of the electronics can be simulated accurately
    • The shape and aesthetics of the product can be viewed easily
    • Prototypes can be produced from CAD drawings…as an input for a CAM process
  • Buildings, bridges, boats
  • And many more
