Why is CAD/CAM crucial in the design process?
CAD/CAM is the most cost effective design tool that could be used by the Royal Navy. With over a million parts and 600 designers, the Royal Navy relies on CAD/CAM. Computer simulation is used to try out and test real life issues. Potential problems are reviewed and changes can be made. At this stage of the design process CAD/CAM saves the Royal Navy time and money. Take a 'virtual' tour as a design engineer aboard HMS Astute.
