Generation of Feature-Based Models
Often there can be a number of ways to perform machining operations on a stock to produce a part, and only some of them are cost- and quality-effective. To determine the best machining sequence, it is necessary that each ...
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 ...
An Investigation of the Mechanics in the Machining of Ceramic Material
This study is an investigation into the mechanics in machining ceramic materials. Extensive experimentation is done in an effort to understand the process of material removal. The theory of fracture mechanics is used to ...
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 ...
Design for Manufacture by Multi-Enterprise Partnerships
Recent world-wide political and financial events have intensified the need to renew the competitiveness of the US manufacturing industry. The means for enabling competitiveness include fast response to the market needs for ...
