CAD Source

The UK Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) contracted CAD Source (now Tim Neill Associates www.timneill.org.uk) to produce a series of "Technology Briefs". These were in-depth training packages that covered various aspects of computer aided engineering technology.

We acted as technical advisors for the DTI Benchmark Testing CADCAM Technology Brief. The package, which was sold in the UK and overseas, included a one hour video, an 80 page booklet and an audiotape.

In this context benchmarking is a methodology to help purchasers compare competing systems and vendors.

The hallmark of benchmark testing is it's supreme rationality. Benchmark tests must be designed to suit the specific requirements of each company. We have helped a number of companies design and undertake benchmark testing including British Aerospace, British Gas On-Line Inspection, Burgess SAIA, Caradon Mira, Matthews & Yates and Nuclear & General Engineering.
