    also how many points did people write for the CAM question??
    I wrote 2 points for each side
    For advantages I put products are more consitant and accurate, and I also put it reduces cost because less labour is needed.
    For disadvantage I put it cost a lot to set up, and I also put it means that some people will loose their jobs

    does it matter if we talked about how CAM could be used in mass manufacture and not for a bespoke product? If so then what do u reckon id get if these were my main points

    advantages:

    -CAM is much more accurate
    -CAM can't get tired and so will work constantly
    -CAM is cheaper over the long term

    disadvantages:

    -CAM can't tell if a design is wrong and will continue to make mistakes
    -CAM will cause people to loose there jobs
    -CAM is more expensive to start up

    For the conclusion i wrote that CAM is capable of cheap mass manufacture but can cause repeated mistakes which could cost lots of money to rectify.
