Describes the use of CASE tools in manufacturing as a means of reducing lead times. Discusses the requirements of manufacturing through the 1990s, as well as two leading‐edge CASE tools. Surmises that until all issues concerning CASE in manufacturing are resolved, adequate techniques with computer support will remain more productive than more appropriate techniques with no support.
