A Feature Library as a Process Planners’ Knowledge Management System


Hendry Muljadi, Hideaki Takeda, Koichi Ando


Vol. 7  No. 5  pp. 127-135


In manufacturing, features can simply be defined as a geometric shape and its corresponding manufacturing information to create the intended shape. For the generation of process plans based on manufacturing feature, it is normal to expect that the corresponding manufacturing information will reflect the knowledge of process planners. This paper proposes a feature library that is able to manage the knowledge of process planners. By enabling the management of the knowledge of process planners, the proposed feature library may be useful to support the generation of process plans. In this paper, the implementation of Semantic Wiki for the development of the prototype feature library is described.
