Abstract:

The Army Materiel Command launched a Coordinated Numerical Control Study for Long Range Plan in 1964. The main objective was to direct all Army numerical control NC manufacturing effort, to result in the best implementation of symbolic control technology. The initial study phases have been completed, and advance work is progressing. Extensive investigations are planned for FY69 and FY70 to develop fluidic devices for process control mechanisms. Plans have also been developed to study the feasibility of establishing a central NC pilot-plant facility. This would become the basis for testing new and advanced NC techniques and systems for all commodity commands of the Army. Author
