Abstract

In this research, the approaches of machining feature-based design and precedence matrix algorithm are combined to automate the process planning task and to generate the machining groups for set-ups, The objective of the presented algorithm is overcome the shortcomings of existing CAPP systems, Parts are described in terms of machining features which consist of geometric and non-geometric information linked to design and manufacturing, Machining feature based-design provides the component description to the process planning which consists of attributes required for automation, Copyright (C) 1996 Elsevier Science Ltd.
