Sescoi Releases New Guide on Benefits of 'ease of use' applied to CADCAM

September 8, 2009 - Sescoi’s new “ease of use” guide explains how considerable benefits can be gained through the application of “ease of use” or “usability” principles to products and software, and how this is particularly relevant to CADCAM systems.

Independent research studies have shown that “ease of use” is one of the top factors taken into consideration by potential users when purchasing many products across a broad range of industries and applications.

The Sescoi guide outlines the factors that define ease of use, such as :

  •  
    •  
      • Short learning curve,
      • Intuitive operation,
      • Ease and speed of memorization,
      • Reliability,
      • Adoption rates,
      • Adaptability to new technological developments, and
      • Accommodation of the needs of different users.


Renowned for its “ease of use” Sescoi’s WorkNC CAM/CAD software is used by leading manufacturers around the world. Using this software as an example, the guide provides cases of benefits from ease of use being achieved in real life, on a daily basis. Numerous machining programming tasks which would normally require highly skilled engineers can be easily completed on the shop floor by lower skilled workers. Other examples in the guide include cases where mold finishing times had been reduced from several days to just a few hours; and others where the software’s reliability had enabled unmanned machining out of normal working hours.

The Guide illustrates how a multi-faceted approach to ease of use is required to reap the full benefits, and that it is not just a matter of an improved user interface. The guide seeks to help manufacturers to examine their own machining practices to see how the deployment of easy to use CAM software can improve the efficiency of existing resources, shorten lead-times and cut costs.
