Abstract

A recent survey indicated that only 4 per cent of UK drawing offices currently use computer-aided design facilities while predicted market growth was put at 45 per cent per annum until 1988. This article gives some ideas on how computer technologies, in particular computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacture (CAD/CAM), may change the role of the engineer.
