A Computer-aided Production Planning System for Mass Customization of Non-rotational Parts 2004-01-1248

This paper introduces a comprehensive system of production planning for mass customization of non-rotational parts. The combined features are defined based on the concept of part families. The process parameters are associated with the feature parameters so that a rapid production planning can be achieved for product design changes. Setup planning is carried out based on both the best practice knowledge in industry and the analysis based generation of setups. Manufacturing resource, fixture design, and tolerance issues are considered in the system. The cycle time estimation and standard documentation are included in the system.
