Reverse engineering proceeds in the reverse of conventional manufacturing order, based on the pull system instead of the traditional push system. This paper is concerned with applying the reverse engineering concept to the development of parts. With this procedure the development of parts involves an iterative reverse process from the scanning of a developmental prototype towards the design model.

The focus is on the use of two set-ups of network in providing computerized data of the prototype that are exchangeable among Computer-Aided Design (CAD) and Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM) systems. The first set-up applies a direct approach to manipulate the scanned data in the CAM environment for generating Numerical Control (NC) programs used for machining the workpiece. The second set-up applies an indirect approach to manipulate the scanned data in a CAD environment prior to generating the NC programs. The major benefits gained from the reverse engineering application in the development of parts are also described.
