The studys objectives were to identify and demonstrate the areas where a computer can aid in the development and manufacture of electronic equipments, and to determine the scope, direction, and objectives of future work necessary to establish operational computerized techniques which effectively exploit the most advanced technologies available for the production of electronic systems. This report examines the manufacturing process from design through production, the environment for utilizing computer-aided techniques, the current state-of-the-art in application programs, and various pertinent hardware and software considerations. A concept referred to as DAMES Design Automation for the Manufacture of Electronic Systems, an integrated system capable of providing computer assistance to a wide variety of users, has been formulated to overcome current limitations and provide a base for evolution and expansion to accommodate future needs. This report describes the requirements, components, and characteristics of DAMES, the recommended first steps in obtaining this capability, and the manner in which the first step can evolve into the dessired ultimate system.
