Nowadays, significant deficiencies exist in the information flow and access along the NC (Numerical Control) process chain. These deficiencies are solved insufficiently by introducing CAD/CAM systems and feature-oriented specification languages. In contrast the application of new production and new machining systems requires an intensive information(More)
Nowadays, there are existing significant deficiencies in the information flow along the NC (numerical control) process chain. The deficiencies are solved insufficiently by introducing CAD/CAM systems and feature-oriented specification languages. In contrast to that the application of new production technologies (like laser ablation) requires an intensive(More)
This chapter deals with the process planning for sequencing NC (numerical control) machining operations. This task of selecting and ordering of machining operations is still done manually in principle. In order to overcome this problem, an approach for enabling the automatic preparation of work plans with methods known from the graph theory is introduced in(More)
The automotive industry is distinguished by regionalization and customization of products. As consequence, the diversity of products will increase while the lot sizes will decrease. Thus more product types have to be handled along the process chain and common production paradigms will failure. Hence, Rapid Manufacturing (RM) will be used for manufacturing(More)
Nowadays enterprises are suspended on a high competition pressure. To resist on it there have been established high requirements concerning the production process. Some of these requirements as for example reliability, stability and productivity are given in order to achieve an optimization within an industrial process. To reach such an optimization within(More)
