New technology-based training and its role in CADCAM

  • R. Martin


CADCAM is only a tool and its effectiveness depends upon the skill of the operator. As with any tool it is easy to abuse it and hence the training given to its users must be of the highest and most effective nature. If CADCAM enables us to apply computers to the design and manufacturing process then can they not also be applied to the education of users of CADCAM. This paper outlines the background to the development by Control Data of their PLATO computer-based learning system.
