"Whelen PCB—A Case Study of Full Automation and Zero Effluent," by Happy Holden, I-Connect007 First Presentation I started off the seminar with a keynote on automation technology and strategies. Auto- mation has been employed in manufacturing since the early '80s and pioneered by the au- tomotive industry and the Computer and Au- tomated Systems Association of the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (CASA/SME). CASA has publicized the strategy and called it CIM— computer-integrated manufacturing. CIM has seven key areas of focus: 1. Computer-aided design 2. Group technology 3. Manufacturing planning and control 4. Robotics 5. Automated material handling 6. Computer-aided manufacturing/ process control 7. Computing technologies coordinating all of these CPCA 2018 Seminar Overview
