Abstract

Our research puts its goal in the generation of a computer-aided process planning system for machining process in the dynamic manufacturing stage. For this goal, we develop a Feature Sets Creator that can lead to the generation of multiple process plans. The generation of multiple process plans of a part is intended to provide alternative plans in the determination of optimal sets of process plans for all the part types in the shop, and to provide flexibility in the shop floor scheduling. The Feature Sets Creator is divided into 2 phases. First, by using Modified Super Relation Graph Method, we recognize interacting and overlapping features in several different ways, corresponding with different kind of machining operations. The second phase is feature organization phase. Here, we organize recognized features into multiple feature sets. In the paper, we will present a case study to confirm the validity of the feature set creator.
