Mike Smith, Swee K. Leong, William Regli


This workshop brought together participants from the earlier workshops held as part of the Process Planning Workshop Series and previous technical meetings of the CAME Forum. The two-day workshop was designed to promote interaction and sharing among workshop participants. Participants included industry end-users, academia, software vendors and government agencies. The workshop provided opportunities to report the status of NIST and other research and development programs and to learn the R&D needs of the manufacturing community. Participant''s interests covered a range of process planning and manufacturing engineering topics. This workshop achieved its objective of providing and opportunity for interaction among the research, development, user, and government participants. These discussions among participants formed the foundation for building future relationships that would move process planning technology development from concept to practice.
