Traditionally, defining the sequence of assembly tasks is not completed until after the product design phase, thus, missing a crucial opportunity to realise the benefits of simultaneous consideration. This paper proposes an approach, which realises the benefits of this simultaneous consideration....
During the last decade, integration between design and manufacturing has shown to be a major competitive weapon and much research work has been carried out about considering at the product design stage production process issues. Most of the literature on such techniques focuses on integrating the...
Developing CNC programs for grinding parts with complex shapes is not a simple task. The programs tend to be long and need complicated calculations, because the programmer must control the whole surface of the grinding wheel not just cutter tip or tool diameter, as turning or milling. Also needed...
