Abstract

A critical step towards computer integrated manufacturing (CIM) is the integration of computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM). Well developed CAD, CAM, and Business data processing systems generally exist in an organization. These systems represent years of work and very large investment for the organization. Thus a necessary condition for integration is defining schemes through which existing engineering and non-engineering data can be represented and manipulated in an integrated way. In this paper a Common Data Model (CDM) approach to distributed heterogeneous database is adopted for CAD/CAM integration and an Extended-Entity- Category-Relationship (EECS) Model (an extension of ER model) is proposed. The use of EECR model as a common conceptual data model for representing engineering and non-engineering data is discussed.
