A canonical data model (CDM) is a type of data model that presents data entities and relationships in the simplest possible form. It is generally used in system/database integration processes where data is exchanged between different systems, regardless of the technology used. A canonical data model is also known as a common data model.
Computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) is an application technology that uses computer software and machinery to facilitate and automate manufacturing processes. CAM is the successor of computer-aided engineering (CAE) and is often used in tandem with computer-aided design (CAD). In addition to materials requirements, modern CAM systems include real-time controls and robotics.
CAM reduces waste and energy for enhanced manufacturing and production efficiency via increased production speeds, raw material consistency and more precise tooling accuracy.CAM uses computer-driven manufacturing processes for additional automation of management, material tracking, planning and transportation. CAM also implements advanced productivity tools like simulation and optimization to leverage professional skills. Depending on enterprise solution and manufacturer, CAM may present inadequacies in the following areas:
Modern CAM solutions are scalable and range from discrete systems to multi-CAD 3D integration.
