Process planning can be defined as determining detailed methods by which parts can be manufactured from the initial to the finished stage. Process planning starts with determining the manufacturing process based on the geometric shape of the part and the machines and tools required for performing this process. Distributed process planning enables production planning to be performed easily by combining the extracted process and various manufacturing resources such as operations and tools. This study proposes an algorithm to determine the process for a feature-based model and to combine manufacturing resources for the process and implements a distributed process planning system.
