Abstract:

This is the Third Annual Report of the Air Force Machinability Data Center covering the period February 1, 1967 through January 31, 1968. Three thousand seven hundred and thirty-four 3,734 documents were processed from which twenty seven thousand and seventy-seven 27,077 cards were key punched. Currently there are 13,101 evaluated documents, and 102,250 punched cards in AFMDC files. One thousand and two 1,002 specific inquiries were answered for 485 different companies, representing 690 individuals in 96 different SIC categories. The 1,002 inquiries represent a 36 increase over the 736 processed in the previous year. The average cost of inquiries equalled 52.66 per inquiry. The data acquisition plant visit program was accelerated and since late 1966, thirty seven visitations have been made, primarily to aerospace firms. Computer programs have been developed and made operational for storage and retrieval of all the information files in use by the Center. In addition, equations have been written and computer programs have been operational for calculating machining costs and production rates for five major machining operations, turning, milling, drilling, tapping and reaming.
