This book describes a vision of manufacturing in the twenty-first century that maximizes efficiencies and improvements by exploiting the full power of information and provides a research agenda for information technology and manufacturing that is necessary for success in achieving such a vision. Research on information technology to support product and process design, shop-floor operations, and flexible manufacturing is described. Roles for virtual manufacturing and the information infrastructure are also addressed. A final chapter is devoted to nontechnical research issues.The information hooks in the data structures will be there to integrate with functional simulations, repair environments, and other aspects of product design. ... Today, a designer of a chip using commercially available CAD tools would undertake the following steps: ac Conceptual design. ... test vector generation, formal verification to ensure that the gate-level view of the chip matches the VHDL description, anbsp;...
