Abstract
Manufacturing equipment ranges from manual, semi-automated to fully automated. Software developers have developed suites of applications for structural design, computer aided design/drafting (CAD), computer aided manufacturing (CAM), building information modeling (BIM), and communication protocols to link production machineries. To further improve production process and material handling, it is essential to rationalize the sectors, review the current status, and identify technology gaps.
