A Machining Process Planning Activity Model for System Integration
Shaw C. Feng
A key issue of integrating process planning systems with design systems and production planning systems is how to overcome barriers in data exchange and sharing amongst software systems. A machining process planning activity model was developed at NIST to address some of the barriers. This model represents functional components and data requirements in process planning systems. The purpose of the model is to create the context in which data requirements and data flow for NC machining process planning are defined. The model was developed as a unification of many previously developed process planning activity models.
