Abstract

The key word with respect to computer‐aided manufacturing is “speed”. Almost all new developments in this high‐tech field centre on decreasing production time. First, the importance of an up‐to‐date software program that will cut decision‐making time is shown. Next, DOS extenders for 386 based systems offer increased speed but can be expensive. Finally, the effects of new developments on the labourforce and labour unions are also compared. All of these related topics are clearly enhanced by real‐life examples.
