|Purpose: Current demands to reduce time and
cost in taking a product from concept to production has forced companies
to turn to new and emerging technologies in design and manufacturing.
VEDAM is aimed at extending the capabilities of existing parametric
Result: Upon completion of the initial implementation,
tests were run on the VEDAM system to check for the accuracy of
setup times and machining times. These results showed that VEDAM
systems provided a good estimate, equal or better than that of
a manufacturing "expert", in estimating setup times and machining
times. These times will also improve as the system is further
