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 ...
Selecting Flat End Mills for 2-1/2D Milling Operations
The size of milling cutter significantly affects the machining time. Therefore, in order to perform milling operations efficiently, we need to select a set of milling cutters with optimal sizes. It is difficult for human ...
A Geometric Algorithm for Finding the Largest Milling Cutter
In this paper, we describe a new geometric algorithm to determine the largest feasible cutter size for2-D milling operations to be performed using a single cutter. In particular:<p>1. We give a general definition of the ...
Semantics for Hierarchical Task-Network Planning
One big obstacle to understanding the nature of hierarchical task network (HTN) planning has been the lack of a clear theoretical framework. In particular, no one has yet presented a clear and concise HTN algorithm that ...
On the Complexity of Blocks-World Planning
In this paper, we show that blocks-world planning is difficult, in the sense that finding an optimal plan is NP-hard. This is true regardless of whether or not, the goal state is completely specified, and regardless of ...
A Geometric Algorithm for Multi-Part Milling Cutter Selection
Mass customization results in smaller batch sizes in manufacturing that require large numbers of setup and tool changes. The traditional process planning that generates plans for one part at a time is no longer applicable. ...
