Seventh International Conference on Computer Technology in Welding
Thomas A. Siewert
This report reviews the worldwide growth and trends in welding software over the past 10 years. It discusses these trends in terms of the changes in computer resources (rapid acceptance of the personal computer and advances in operating systems) as well as the identification and development of sophisticated welding applications for these computer resources. The trends have been somewhat different by country (the U.S. had an initial emphasis on welding databases, while Europe had an initial emphasis on applications software), but there has generally been a rapid growth in the development and acceptance of welding software during this period.
