A Methodology for Computer Aided Stamping Engineering 890502
The stamping engineering process is reviewed in this work, to provide a needs analysis and requirements for computer aided methodologies and methodology based tools for the practitioners in the industry.
Although many computer aided tools are identified and are applicable to this “market” driven stamping industry, the demands placed on the background of the practioners, the economics of design and analysis, as well as the lead time constraints, impose further limitations to the use of some computer tools.
The work provides an overview of some recent developments of computer aids within the stamping engineering perspective. It is shown that no one computer tool is sufficient to address the stamping engineering tasks, and that emphasis should be geared towards a set of design, analysis, and production maintenance tools that complement each other.
