Open Systems Interface Specification for Machining Process Planning Integration

Abstract

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. Each software system has its own proprietary data format and definition, which is often not available to users. A machining process planning activity model has been developed to define data exchange and sharing requirements for an open, neutral, and extensible data model. This paper presents the activity model and a machining process plan data model developed as an international product data exchange standards (ISO 10303-213). These two models were designed and developed to enable the integration of process planning systems with other manufacturing software systems, such as computer-aided design systems, machine tool control programming systems , resource management systems, production scheduling systems, and factory simulation systems.
