Design for Manufacture: Expert Processing Sequence Selection for Early Product Design
Date of Original Version
Summary: A method to Systematically map part geometry and material requirements onto sequences of processes and compatible materials is described. The geometrical and material constraints of the design are input information for the system. The system produces a list of practical processing sequences and material combinations. The sequences are ranked according to the difficulty of manufacturing the Dart with particular processes selected and how well a material meets the material requirements for the part. © 1992 CIRP.
