Abstract:

A way of determining whether to machine a part by numerical control or conventional methods is needed. This research was made to develop two cost models, one for numerical controlled machining methods and one for conventional machining methods. A comparison of the costs given by the models will determine which machining method is to be used. This report found that although there is a correlation between these costs and the variables used, the models are not accurate for making any decisions regarding which machining method to use.
