Title

Reuse Machining Knowledge for Generating Process Plans of Axisymmetric Parts Based on Case-Based Reasoning

Abstract

The basic idea of case-based reasoning (CBR) is to retrieve and modify the most relevant prior case to match new requirements. In this paper, a framework for a process planning system for machining of axisymmetric parts using case-based reasoning is introduced. It is composed of four major components: retriever, modifier, simulator, and repairer. when a desired axisymmetric part is to be machined, the proposed system first retrieves the most relevant case from the case library as a plan candidate. Since the plan candidate is rarely the same as the desired one, the system performs modification, simulation, and reparation on it. The proposed system has been implemented on a Sun workstation using the ACIS geometric modeler and C++.
