Industrial Design with Microcomputers by Steven K. Roberts (Prentice-Hall, 1982), is a book designed to familiarize engineering managers with some of the applications of computer aided design (CAD). It offers examples of micros in industrial applications, and utilizes Cromemco systems — both hardware and software — throughout as the primary source from which data and examples were built.

Jency Kelly of Royal Data, Inc. in Titusville, Florida is acknowledged by Roberts for his assistance in the author’s understanding of CROMIX.

While not highly technical in nature, the book offers a valuable overview of some of the possible applications of micros in industry, and could become a necessary reference piece for corporate planners.
