Integrated approach to knowledge-based process-plan generation

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

2 Scopus citations


An integrated approach is presented to process-plan generation with an expert system. First, the research takes full advantage of the programming language(s) embedded in existing CAD software to develop a CAM database system that is building-oriented rather than drawing-oriented, and from which drawings are produced as reports. Then, a knowledge-base system is designed to automate the development of the process plan. The application of the expert system to a mechanical part is illustrated.
