This report summarizes research surrounding the simulations of two manufacturing processes-the finishing andor repair of material surfaces and the stamping of sheet metal parts. Regarding the surface finishing project, a unified mathematical theory for the process of material removal by abrasion grinding and polishing was developed. Then strategies were formulated for, material removal by Operator controlled OC or Computer Numerically Controlled CNC machines. For, the sheet metal stamping project, certain asymmetric numerical solution were characterized as symmetry breaking.
