CAD

 computer aided design at work

 

CAD, also known as computer aided design, is the process of using computers to create, modify, and optimize product design.

This helps facilitate the manufacturing process as it builds detailed diagrams of a product’s materials, tolerances, and dimensions which can then be used in a practical context.

CAD reduces both product development costs and time to market.
