Pagination or Media Count:
This research project is aimed at development of a concurrent engineering system for integrated product and process development of machined component designs. Its main purpose is to evaluate the feasibility of implementation of a concurrent engineering system which provides both horizontal and veflical integration of CADCAM systems. The research and development of this project has been founded on concepts of form features and object-oriented computer techniques. The RD tasks identified in the research project are 1 feature definition and classification, 2 product data representation, 3 product information modeling, 4 manufacturing resources modeling, 5 producibility evaluation, 6 manufacturing process planning, and 7 NC program modeling. Throughout the entire project period, industrial practice and standards have been closely observed and incorporated in the development, when applicable. .
