|Title:||Feature-Based Process Planning in the AMRF|
|Published:||July 01, 1988|
|Abstract:||The growing use of features in the design and manufacturing communities is due to the fact that features better capture the functionality or intent associated with a part design. The process planning team at the National Bureau of Standards is using features and their associated functionality to derive process plans from a part model in a semi-automatic fashion. The process planning team believes that features are the key to having a fully automated planning system. This paper will discuss the feature-based process planning work currently in progress at the AMRF. Before the current work is described, background information will be given on the AMRF, process planning in the AMRF, some existing definitions of a feature, how the process planning team defines a feature, and current research in the field of features.|
