Today the market increasingly drives the Industry. Manufacturers are experiencing ever increasing pressure to shorten the 'TIME TO MARKET', Optimise product development cycle time and produce superior quality of products with minimum cost to ensure customer satisfaction. In such a competitive environment it is the survival of the fittest.
A person or company equipped with the latest technology will be surely have an upper hand in such circumstances. Therefore high end CAD / CAM packages which offer complete flexibility in terms design, manufacturing and analysis, have become the key factors for success.
The salient features of high end mechanical CAD TOOLS ( Ex. PRO/ENGINEER, MASTERCAM, ANSYS etc.) are bi-directional associativity, art to part concept, sharing of master database across the team of designers, analysts and manufacturing personnel.
CAD/CAM tools are used to desing and manufacture any kind of product - Industrial equipment, heavy equipment, electronics, transportation, Aerospace, Consumer, etc.
These CAD/CAM tools packages indeed give an edge to the Mechanical Engineers to be more efficinet and productive and achieve set targets.
