In order to ensure that the process plan and numerical control (NC) programs are complete and correct before jobs are released to the shop floor, manufacturing industry needs a validation system that has visualization and analysis capabilities. A prototype manufacturing data validation system has been developed by the Manufacturing Simulation and Modeling Group of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The work was carried out as a part of the NIST/NAVY Computer Aided Manufacturing Engineering (CAME) program. The manufacturing data validation system uses simulation and an interactive checklist to validate the manufacturing engineering data package. This paper discusses the manufacturing data validation methodology through a simulation model and presents a prototype of a manufacturing data validation system.
