Computer Aided Manufacture is changing work practices and dramatically influencing the design process. Through the use of three exciting case studies, this program provides an insight into the commercial world of designing and modern manufacturing approaches, including; just-in-time manufacture, rapid prototyping and concurrent engineering. Case Study 1 - Shepperton Film Studios. How CAM is used to create props and architectural models Case Study 2 - Hozelock. How CAM is used alongside rapid prototyping to create functional prototypes for testing. Case Study 3 - Guitar Design. How CAM technology allows bespoke manufacture, in this case guitars for the likes of Bryan May and Martin Taylor.
