Use of computers in manufacturing in order to design and develop the products has found unprecedented applications. Computer integrated way of manufacturing providesa myriad of benefits such as speed, flexibility, and better control. In this course, Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM) approaches are discussed. CAD/CAM tools and their within and between the production systems are presented along with appropriate case studies. Data storage and handling is also the need of contemporary manufacturing systems. This is also catered using software tools. The course is reinforced with the laboratory demonstrations to add a practitioners’ touch. Students would develop a prowess to largely plan, design and develop a product and a production system after completing this course


 Students of all Engineering and Science disciplines.


The student should have completed two semesters of UG Engineering or Science program.
