Case-based approach for process planning

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

In this research, we focus on the development of an object-oriented case-based process planner which combines the advantages of the variant and generative approaches to process planning. The case-based process planner operates on general 3D prismatic parts, represented by a collection of features (eg: slots, pockets, holes, etc.). Each feature subplan is developed by the case-based planner and then combined into the global process plan for the part via a hierarchical plan merging mechanism. Cases are abstracted feature subplans, which are used in subsequent planning operations to solve new problems. The abstracting and storing of feature subplans as cases is the primary mechanism by which the planner learns from its previous experiences to become more effective and efficient. The computer-aided process planner is designed to be extensible and flexible through the effective use of object-oriented principles.
