Background Info - CAD Systems

Computer Aided Design Systems are used by many manufacturing companies, and many value-added distribution companies, that sell complex products. They manage a centralized database of engineering specifications for all products bought, and/or sold, by the company. This system is typically used by the company's engineering function.

CAD Systems can operate either in a standalone mode, or they can be interfaced with the company's ERP System, and/or its Document Management Software System.
