Abstract:

A computerized production process planning system was demonstrated. The system performs generative process planning for machined cylindrical parts. Manufacturer-independence is achieved by using process decision models that express local manufacturing practice. A man-machine communications interface permits human oversightmodification of process plan development. Industry surveys were conducted to collect data relevant to the benefits of computerized process planning. Results of the surveys are summarized. Cash flow analyses estimating cost savings to industry are presented. Benefits of the demonstration system in defense procurement are projected. Author
