Automated Generation of Group Technology Codes from a PDES Product Information Model
The design and implementation of an automated system that generates group technology (GT) codes for microwave modules (MWM) is presented. An established GT coding scheme (MICLASS) was employed to capture the mechanical ...
Generation and Evaluation of Alternative Operation
This paper presents a new and systematic approach to assist decision-making in selecting machining operation sequences. The approach is to produce alternative interpretations of design as different collections of machinable ...
Concurrent Evaluation of Machinability during Product Design
This paper presents a new methodology of evaluating the machinability of a machined part during the design state of the product development cycle, so that problems related to machining can be recognized and corrected while ...
Automated Manufacturability Evaluation for Microwave Modules
Current competitive trends in manufacturing require full implementation of concurrent engineering, i.e. the consideration of all relevant aspects of a product's life cycle in the design phase. This research work focuses ...
