The paper discusses conceptual changes observed as CADCAM systems progress from one generation to another. The influence of representation technology on concepts and methods in CADCAM is discussed, and then the influences of communication between computers, and of knowledge-based programs are considered. Taken together, these various aspects of computer technology throw light on possible scenarios for the future working environment.
