Abstract

Recent years have seen a greater acceptance and application of concurrent engineering in the design and manufacture of products. One area in which the need for concurrent engineering has been strongly emphasized is in the integration of product design and process planning. Often forgotten in the integration process is the consideration of existing shop floor conditions in the selection of a process plan in the manufacture of a product. In this paper, the problem of integrating process plan selection with material handling is discussed. Results of a simple illustration is presented to demonstrate the importance of considering material handling in the specification of a process plan for a product in situations where multiple process plans can be created.
