a high-level language that can be used in application software.
Computer-Aided Design is the use of high-resolution graphics in a wide range of design activities, allowing quick evaluation and modification.
Computer-Aided Engineering is the analysis of a design for basic error-checking, or to optimize manufacturability.
the process of determining the capacity or scale graduations of a measuring instrument.
Computer-Aided Manufacturing is the use of computer technology to generate data to control part or all of a manufacturing process.
Controller area network
Computer-Aided Process Planning is a management framework for data that assists the functions of process planning in manufacturing.
Computer-Aided Software Engineering is the use of object-oriented programming and other techniques to streamline generation of programming code.
Compact-Disc, Read-Only Memory systems use digitized multimedia signals
to recreate text, video, and graphics. A data-storage medium using the
same physical format as audio compact discs. CD-ROM is popular for
distribution of large databases, software, and especially multimedia
a manufacturing unit consisting of two or more workstations or machines
and the materials, transport mechanisms and storage buffers that
Computer-Integrated Manufacturing is the increased integration of
business and manufacturing functions through application of information
technology; the use of computers in all aspects of manufacturing, with
integration of functions and control in a hierarchy of computer systems.
a communications path between two points.
A method of establishing a dedicated communications path between two or more locations through one or more switching nodes. Data is sent in a continuous stream; the data rate is constant; the delay is constant and limited to propagation times; and a dedicated end to end path remains in effect until the communication is terminated.
Coordination of two independent motion axes to produce an apparent circular motion. It's done through a series of straight line approximations via software algorithms.
a user's workstation in a client/server architecture. The client serves as a user interface processing time-consuming tasks to distribute the computing load from the server.
