Procedural Elaboration in CAD/CAM Implementation and Its Impact on CAD/CAM Effectiveness

Metadata Downloads
Abstract
The primary purpose of this study was to determine if a relationship existed between the degree of procedural elaboration in introducing and implementing CAD/CAM system and the level of effectiveness of CAD/CAM.

A secondary purpose was to investigate and identify contingency factors that might affect the primary relationship. Those variables considered are top management involvement & support, user involvement, vendor support, size of organization and size of system.

The data consisted of information from 74 firms which adopt CAD/CAM system in Korea.

The study presents that there was a significant relationship between procedural elaboration and the effectivenes of CAD/CAM system, but that the extent of this association varied with respect to contingency factors. It was shown that the effectiveness is most likely when contingency factors such as top management involvement & support, user involvement and vendor support are both present. Pearson's product moment correlational analysis show that top management involvement & support and size of the system are associated with procedural elaboration, but canonical analysis show that size of organization and vendor support are associated with procedurdal elaboration. This suggests complex interdependent relationships are imbedded in the variable set. CAD/CAM effectiveness is affected by user involvement & vendor support.

Further research is also required. A strategy focus is needed in studying implementation of CAD/CAM. More comprehensive environmental, structural variabes and more accurate measure of effectiveness is also required.
