Integrating Tradeoff Analysis and Plan-Based Evaluation of Designs for Microwave Modules
Previously, we have described two systems, EDAPS and EXTRA, which support design and process planning for the manufacture of microwave modules, complex devices with both electrical and mechanical attributes. EDAPS integrates ...
Automated Manufacturability Analysis: A Survey
In the marketplace of the 21st century, there is no place for traditional ``over-the-wall'' communications between design and manufacturing. In order to ``design it right the very first time,'' designers must ensure that ...
Current Trends and Future Challenges in Automated Manufacturability Analysis
In the marketplace of the 21st century, there is no place for traditional communications between design and manufacturing. In order to ``design it right the first time,'' designers must ensure that their products are both ...
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 ...
Estimation of Setup Time for Machined Parts: Accounting for Work-Holding Constraints
For machined parts, setup time is a major component of the total time required to create a machined part. If the setup time can be reduced, this will not only decrease the machining time, but will also ensure better machining ...
