MetadataShow full item record
Automated Process Planning forms an important link in the integration of CAD and CAM systems. This paper gives an overview of the main types of computerized process planning systems. It demonstrates that part geometry, available machines and cutting tools as well as required cutting forces are the important factors that influence sequencing of the required machining processes. The paper analyzes feasible method for process sequence optimization, which is an important part of process sequencing.
