COMPUTER INTEGRATED MANUFACTURING
LTPC 3 00 3
This course will enable the student
To gain knowledge about the basic fundamental of CAD.
To gain knowledge on how computers are integrated at various levels of planning
and manufacturing understand computer aided planning and control and computer
COMPUTER AIDED DESIGN
Concept of CAD as drafting and designing facility, desirable features of CAD package,
drawing features in CAD – Scaling, rotation, translation, editing, dimensioning, labeling,
Zoom, pan, redraw and regenerate, typical CAD command structure, wire frame modeling,
surface modeling and solid modeling (concepts only) in relation to popular CAD packages.
COMPONENTS OF CIM
CIM as a concept and a technology, CASA/Sme model of CIM, CIM II, benefits of CIM,
communication matrix in CIM, fundamentals of computer communication in CIM – CIM data
transmission methods – seriel, parallel, asynchronous, synchronous, modulation,
demodulation, simplex and duplex. Types of communication in CIM – point to point
(PTP), star and multiplexing. Computer networking in CIM – the seven layer OSI model,
LAN model, MAP model, network topologies – star, ring and bus, advantages of
networks in CIM
GROUP TECHNOLOGY AND COMPUTER AIDED PROCESS
History Of Group Technology – role of G.T in CAD/CAM Integration – part familiesclassification and coding – DCLASS and MCLASS and OPTIZ coding systems – facility
design using G.T – benefits of G.T – cellular manufacturing.Process planning - role of process
planning in CAD/CAM Integration – approaches to computer aided process planning – variant
approach and generative approaches – CAPP and CMPP systems.
