A COMPUTER PROGRAMME TO PRODUCE WORKSHOP DRAWINGS OF ROAD SIGNS

A computer program is described whereby most workshop drawings for the manufacture of signs can be prepared automatically using a digital computer flat bed plotter combination. The technique has been successful, the total time taken to produce each drawing being cut by almost 90 percent. The preliminary analysis of the problem is described in which all standard signs were placed in five basic shape groups. Details are given of the program logic and subroutines. Recent developments and future proposals are outlined. A discussion of the paper and the author's closure are included.
