Dai Nippon Printing Co has developed a system called DCATS for automatical conversion of data stored in Lockheed’s CADAM CAD/CAM system (distributed by both IBM and Fujitsu in Japan) into an editable and publishable data format that present easy-to-read graphics when drawn from a database: the conversion process is claimed to be completely automatic, and makes data and graphics accessible for the non-specialist to manipulate for desk-top editing and publishing, for down-line loading to a micro and for accessing on a viewdata system; 1,500 CADAM systems have been sold in Japan, claimed to be half the total world sales; Dai Nippon will offer data conversion services as well as the product.
