MANUFACTURING CELL OPERATOR'S EXPERT SYSTEM - MCOES

Objective

The objective of the project are :

1)to introduce computerised methods so the part designer is able to analyze the manufacturability of designed parts;
2)to develop a generative process planning system which supports the manufacturing engineer;
3)to develop an interactive expert system that integrates the former objectives. The application will be used in manufacturability analysis, process planning, NC-generation and simulation stages.
Computerised methods are being developed to enable the part designer to analyse the manufacturability of designed parts along with a generative process planning system which supports the manufacturing engineer. An interactive expert system which integrates these processes is also being developed.
This application will be used in manufacturability analysis, process planning, numerical control generation and simulation stages.
This research will lead to advanced integration of process planning and manufacturing design of one-of-a-king products. In future, the product designer will take care of process planning while the product sales engineer will be able to make variations to the product and make manufacturing decisions as well. The stages of design, planning and manufacturing will be closely integrated. To reach this objective, methods and tools for design, planning and manufacturing have to be enhanced to cope with the relevant planning and decision-making steps. Production for the design will be implemented rather than designing for production.
