As a CAD specialist you need to develop standard mechanical engineering drawings such that it can be easily interpreted by the mechanical engineer. Before you start working on mechanical drawings, you must know how to use common mechanical symbols correctly. You have to take special care while relating various mechanical components design drawings to the overall plan of the assembly.Read more

SCOPE OF COMPUTER INTEGRATED MANUFACTURING | COMPUTER INTEGRATED MANUFACTURING DIAGRAM | COMPONENTS OF COMPUTER INTEGRATED MANUFACTURING
When all of the activities of the modern manufacturing plants are considered as a whole, it is impossible to think that a small portion might be automated, let alone trying to envisage automation of the whole.
In systems approach, a large and complex system with interacting components are analyzed and improved. The one who assigned with the responsibility of implementation of automation for complex system is advised to implement a technique similar to the traditional systems approach.
There are nine major elements of a CIM system are:
2. Product Design
5. Manufacturing Engineering
6. Factory Automation Hardware
9. Information ManagementRead more
