ADVANCES IN RAPID TOOLING IN PRODUCT INTRODUCTION PROCESSES

Abstract

Time compression techniques such as 3D CAD, computer analysis (product functionality and process simulation), and Rapid Prototyping and Tooling (RPT) provide significant opportunities for improving product development and manufacturing strategy. The current research investigates wider issues of manufacturing strategy in addition to the application and use of time compression technologies. This paper describes the infrastructural requirements of RPT with emphasis on the North East of England and investigates the manufacturing business drivers that are influencing further development of RPT time compression technologies.
