A Systematic Approach for Analyzing the Manufacturability of Machined Parts
The ability to quickly introduce new quality products is a decisive factor in capturing market share. Because of pressing demands to reduce lead time, analyzing the manufacturability of the proposed design has become an ...
Evaluating Product Machinability for Concurrent Engineering
Decisions made during the design of a machined part can significantly affect the product's cost, quality, and lead time. Thus, in order to address the goals of concurrent engineering, it is important to evaluate the ...
Integrating DFM with CAD through Design Critiquing
In research on concurrent engineering and engineering design, the increasing use of design for manufacturability(DFM) is expanding the scope of traditional design activities in order to identify and eliminate manufacturing ...
Feature Recognition for Manufacturability Analysis
While automated recognition of features has been attempted for a wide range of applications, no single existing approach possesses the functionality required to perform manufacturability analysis. In this paper, we present ...
Reducing Setup Cost by Automated Generation of Redesign Suggestions
All mechanical designs pass through a series of formal and informal redesign steps, involving the analysis of functionality, manufacturability, cost and other life-cycle factors. The speed and efficacy of these steps has ...
Extracting Alternative Machining Features: Al Algorithmic Approach
Automated recognition of features from CAD models has been attempted for a wide range of application domains. In this paper we address the problem of representing and recognizing the complete class of features in alternative ...
