Information : CAD/CAM Training
McDonnell Douglas Aerospace (MDA)-St. Louis CAD/CAM users are transitioning from the use of EDS’ Unigraphics Version 9 to Version 10. While this transition represents a significant upgrade from wireframe to solid modeling capability as well as many other features, it also necessitates the retraining of all current users since Version 10 has a new user interface. Retraining users will be accomplished using the Computer-Assisted Self Teach On-Line Library training program instead of the traditional method of instructor-led classes.
Computer-Assisted Self Teach is an on-line, interactive, self-paced training tool modeled after a traditional instructor-led course and is regularly updated to remain consistent with the current Unigraphics release. Current tutorials include Parametric Modeling Fundamentals and Version 10 Drafting Fundamentals as well as a new Manufacturing Transition course. Many benefits of Computer-Assisted Self Teach are now being realized, such as availability and convenience to users at their workstations, and the ability to accommodate a high volume of users. Major cost savings are also expected to occur through significant reductions in courseware development (50% reduction); courseware maintenance (70% reduction); instructor pay (40% reduction); and reproduction of training manuals (60% reduction).
