Abstract:

Sate-of-the-Art CADCAM in this paper refers to mission-specific applications with the ability to describe a design that is independent of technology at certain levels. That is, describing a design in a manner independent of any particular implementation, yet allowing integrated verification across design boundaries. Such a high-level approach pays huge dividends in transferring designs in one technology to another, e.g., bipolar gate arrays to GaAs gate arrays. CADCAM Technology encompasses more generic aspects of systems development requiring a common base or core of computational tools, applicable across the spectrum of engineering disciplines. Well present some structures useful for improving understanding of technology, systems, CADCAM and for better communications across interfaces. A technology planning and communications framework considering a hierarchical systems schema is introduced for looking at the spectrum of user tasks in the life cycle of electronic products. The Navys Acquisition Strategy and Plans for Computer-Aided DesignComputer-Aided Manufacturing CADCAM are presented. NATO Furnished. RH
