Abstract:

A system for determining optimal machining conditions based on actual production machining data is developed. This system is applicable to analysis and control of single-operation as well as multiple-operation numerically- controlled machining. The system incorporates a computer program which provides an evolutionary operation analysis and response surface, regression analysis of two responses, cost per piece and production rate. The output of this program provides production personnel with the information necessary for determining the optimal machining conditions for either minimum cost or maximum production.
