CAE is the acronym for Computer-Aided Engineering. CAE is the use of software solutions for simulating the physical behavior of a future product. CAE includes: * Stress analysis on components and assemblies using FEA (Finite Element Analysis) * Thermal and fluid flow analysis CFD (Computational fluid dynamics) * Kinematics * Analysis tools for process simulation for operations such as casting, molding, and die press forming * Optimization of the product or process.

CAM is the acronym for Computer-Aided Manufacturing. CAM is the use of software solutions for defining manufacturing operations. CAM is a programming tool that makes it possible to manufacture physical models using CAD (computer-aided design) programs. CAM is not only a NC (Numerical Control) programming tool. CAM functions have expanded to integrate CAM more fully with CAD/CAM/CAE PLM solutions.

PLM is the acronym for Product Lifecycle Management. PLM is a business strategy that helps companies share product data, apply common processes, and leverage corporate knowledge for the development of products from conception to retirement, across the extended enterprise.
S1000D is an international specification for the procurement and production of technical publications. It is an SGML/XML standard for preparing, managing, and using equipment maintenance and operations information.

SCORM is the acronym for Sharable Content Object Reference Model (SCORM). It is a collection of standards and specifications for web-based e-learning. It defines communications between client side content and a host system called the run-time environment, which is commonly supported by a learning management system.
