Abstract

Planning for the manufacture of axisymmetric parts: an Al-based approach S.S. Jagdale" & K.K. Wang& ^University of Arizona, Tucson, AZ 85721, USA 1 Introduction The interest in automated process planning in recent years reflects its intellectual challenge and points to the economic potential of its widespread use. System- atizing the generation of process plans is critical to achieving a higher efficiency and consistency of manufacture. This paper deals with the automation of process planning for machined components. We are interested in synthesizing detailed and efficient plans which will relieve the planner from routine tasks so that he can perform more interesting and challenging jobs. Our objective is twofold : to generate process plans for routine parts quickly and efficiently, and to satisfy the specifications of tight tolerances, both dimensional and relative, for high-precision parts. The overall intent is to study the issues associated with the representat
