Abstract

This paper describes the development of Computer Aided Process Planning methods at the University of Canterbury and Nanyang Technological University. Three methods are described: a generative system for milling operations, an interactive system for cylindrical parts, and a retrieval system using neural networks. They are based on tolerance analysis and, in particular our technique for tolerance charting using rooted tree digraphs.
