Abstract:

This report summarizes work performed under AFRL Contract Number FA8650-11-C-7142 for the development of an iFAB process and machine capability library. Specifically, the report is in draft form and addresses three major task areas relevant to the proposed effort. The main objective of this research is to create and validate adaptable software libraries of manufacturing processes, machines, tooling and fixtures, and other operations pertinent to the fabrication of electro-mechanical components andor assemblies for armed military ground vehicles. These libraries will serve as repositories of manufacturing process, machine, tooling, fixture, inspection capability models and associated data for use by the iFAB foundry reconfiguration environment.
