Computer applications in manufacturing companies are now widespread. Due to the development of very large scale integration (VLSI) and the potential for even higher scale integration which could go up to millions of transistors per chip, computers have become more sophisticated, more powerful and cheaper. In the present competitive commercial environment, the use of computer technology in the manufacture of parts and production processes is perhaps the most promising method for increasing productivity and financial gain.
