Abstract : ARL Penn State has developed a manufacturing model library of manufacturing processes and resources typically used to create military ground vehicle drive train and mobility systems. While developing the library, the project team developed a methodology for the development of the models, and then used that methodology to create models and populate them with real data and information. These models will be used by the iFAB Foundry performer for manufacturability analysis and foundry configuration. Manufacturing models are comprised of both process Models and resource Models. The project team completed manufacturing models for Welding, Casting, Forging, Ausforming, Coatings (organic and inorganic), Sheet and Plate Metal Cutting, Material Handling, Dimensional Inspection and Control, and Wire Harness Assembly. In addition, we extended the process models developed by the iFAB performers with detailed resource models of the machines, labor, tooling, fixturing, etc. for the following manufacturing processes: Machining, Additive Manufacturing (Direct Digital Manufacturing), Assembly, and Forming.
