  • This paper describes an integrated CAD and CAPP system for prismatic parts of injection mold which generates a complete process plan automatically from CAD data of a part without human intervention. This system employs Auto CAD as a CAD model and GS-CAPP as an automatic process planning system for injection mold. The proposed CAD/CAPP system consists of three modules such as CAD data conversion module, manufacturing feature recognition module, and CAD/CAPP interface module. CAD data conversion module transforms design data of AutoCAD into three dimensional part data. Manufacturing feature recognition module extracts specific manufacturing features of a part using feature recognition rule base. Each feature can be recognized by combining geometry, position and size of the feature. CAD/CAPP interface module links manufacturing feature codes and other head data to automatic process planning system. The CAD/CAPP system can improve the efficiency of process planning activities and reduce the time required for process planning. This system can provide a basis for the development of part feature based design by analyzing manufacturing features.

  • Comtputer Aided Process Planning(CAPP) has been emerged as playing a key role in Computer Integrated Manufactunng(CIM) as the most critical link to integrate CAD and CAM. A modified variant CAPP system based on process planning rule base is developed in this paper. This CAPP system generates process plans automatically according to the GT code data provided as input. In order to execute process planning, various process planning rules are constructed in the form of decision tree and the inference engine that extracts the process plan based on the tree-structured rules are implemented.

  • Manufacturing environs constantly change, and any efficient software system to be used in manufacturing must be able to adapt to the varying situations. In a CAPP (Computer-Aided Process Planning) system, a learning capability is necessary for the CAPP system to do change along with the manufacturing system. Unfortunately only a few CAPP systems currently possess learning capabilities. This research aims at the development of a learning system which can increase the knowledge in a CAPP system. A part in the system is represented by frames and described interactively. The process information and process planning logic is represented using a decision tree. The knowledge expansion is carried out through an interactive expansion of the decision tree according to human advice. Algorithms for decision tree modification are developed. A path can be recommended for an unknown part of limited scope. The processes are selected according to the criterion such as minimum time or minimum cost. The decision tree, and the process planning and learning procedures are formally defined.

  • Computer aided process planning (CAPP) keeps an important role between the design and manufacturing engineering processes. A CAPP system is a digital link between a computer aided design (CAD) model and manufacturing instructions. CAPP have been researched and applied in manufacturing filed, however, one manufacturing area where CAPP has not been extensively researched is rapid prototyping (RP). RP is a technique for creating directly a three dimensional CAD data into a physical prototype. RP enables to build physical models automatically and to use to reduce the time for the product development cycle as well as to improve the final quality of the designed product. Three-dimensional (3D) printing is one kind of RP that creates three-dimensional objects from CAD models. The paper presents a computer aided process planning system for printing medical products. 3D printing has been used to solve complex medical problems such as surgical instruments, bioengineered products, medical implants, and surgical guides.

  • 다품종소량생산의 특징을 갖고 있는 금형공업에서 컴퓨터통합생산시스템(Computer Integrated Manufacturing System;CIMS)의 실현을 위한 중요한 분야의 하나는 부품설계도면으로부터 최종제품을 생산하는데 필요한 공정계획의 자동화, 즉 컴퓨터를 이용하여 공정계획을 자동적으로 생성하는 자동공정계획시스템(Computer Aided Process Planning;CAPP) 기술의 개발이다. 국내외적으로 CAPP분야의 연구는 컴퓨터 지원에 의한 자동화 기술의 급속한 발전과 더불어 지난 20여년 동안에 기계가공품에 관한 CAPP은 약 150여가지가 개발되었으나, 이는 컴퓨터 지원에 의한 설계의 자동화(Computer Aided Design;CAD)나 컴퓨터 지원에 의한 제조의 자동화(Computer Aided Manufacturing;CAM)분야에 비해 상대적으로 저조한 형편이다. 특히 금형을 대상으로 한 CAPP시스템의 개발은 아직 초기단계에 있기 때문에, 본 연구에서는 사출금형을 대상으로 하여 실용성이 있는 공정설계시스템을 개발함을 목적으로 한다. 일반적으로 공정계획은 "소재로부터 제품을 경제적, 효율적으로 생산하는데 필요한 제조공정의 체계적인 결정"이라고 정의할 수 있다. 공정계획은 제품의 종류와 수량, 재료와 부품의 종류, 보유 생산설비와 제조기술의 수준에 따라 다르나, 공정설계(Process Design)와 작업설계(Operation Design)로 구분할 수 있다. 본 연구에서는 공정계획을 광의의 공정설계로 정의하고, 공정설계와 공정계획을 동의어로 통용토록 한다. 기존의 CAPP시스템의 개발에 관한 기본적인 접근방법은 변성형방법(Variant method), 창성형방법(Generative method) 및 자동화방법(Automatic method)이 있다. 이들 CAPP시스템을 개발할 때 사용하는 기법은 크게 5가지- (1) GT(group Technology) 접근기법, (2) Bottom-up 접근기법, (3) Top-down 접근기법, (4) AI와 전문가시스템(Expert System) 접근기법, (5) 컴퓨터 프로그래밍 언어 - 로 분류할 수 있다. 본 연구에서는 전문가시스템 기법을 도입해서 사출금형 공정계획전문가의 지식과 경험을 획득하여 지식베이스를 구축하고, 전문가시스템 셀(shell)중 CLIPS를 이용하여 자동공정계획시스템인 Mold CAPP을 개발하였다.PP을 개발하였다.

  • A part definition must not only provide shape information of a nominal part but also contain non-shape information such as tolerances, surface roughness and material attributes. Although machining features are useful for suitable shape information for process reasoning in the CAPP, they need to be integrated with tolerance information for effective process planning. We develop the tolerance modeler that efficiently integrates machining features with tolerance information for feature-based CAPP It is based on the association of machining features, tolerance features. and tolerances Tolerance features, where tolerances are assigned, are classified into two types; one is the face that is a topological entity on a solid model and the other is the functional geometry that is not referenced to topological entities. The functional geometry is represented by using machining features All the data for representing tolerance information with machining features are stored completely and unambiguously in the independent tolerance structure. The developed tolerance modeler is implemented as a module of a comprehensive feature-based CAPP system.

  • A part definition must not only provide shape information of a nominal part but also contain non-shape information such as tolerances, surface roughness and material specifications. Although machining features are useful for suitable shape information fur process reasoning in CAPP, they need to be integrated with tolerance information for effective process planning. We develop a tolerance modeler that efficiently integrates the machining features with the tolerance information fur feature-based CAPP. It is based on the association of machining features, tolerance features, and tolerances. The tolerance features in this study, where tolerances are assigned, are classified into two types; one type is a face that is a topological entity on a solid model and the other type is a functional geometry that is not referenced to topological entities. The (unctional geometry is represented by using machining features. All the data fur representing the tolerance information are stored completely and unambiguously in an independent tolerance data structure. The developed tolerance modeler is implemented as a module of a comprehensive feature-based CAPP system.

  • The manual procedure of drafting engineering design is fast becoming obsolete. One of the important areas in CAPP is to automate tolerance assignment which is encountered in mechanical part design. This paper presents an approach for automating tolerance assignment using CAD database and tolerancing database in CAD drawing. The system is consisted of four major functions feasture extraction, feaure inferencing, rule-based tolerance allocation, and automatic upating. Auto CAD R.II is employed as CAD system and a computer progran is developed by using Auto LISP on PC-386.

  • 컴퓨터원용 공정계획(CAPP; Computer-Aided Process Planning)은 CAD와 CAM을 연결하는, CIM의 완성을 위한 필수 기능이다. 지금까지 많은 CAPP 관련 연구 논문과 시스템이 발표되었으나, CAPP의 필수 기능인 기계의 선택 문제를 근본적으로 다루고 해결한 예는 없었다. 본 연구에서는 먼저 완전히 일반적인 기계 선택 문제의 모델을 제시하였다. 그 모델로부터 기계 선택 문제의 속성이 고찰되었다. 기계 선택 문제는 완전히 일반화해서는 경우의 수가 다룰 수 없을 만큼 크기 때문에 그것을 단순화하는 방법들이 제시되었다. 예를 통해서 그 방법의 효과를 입증하였다.
