Abstract

This paper describes an on going research by the authors who are seeking methods to integrate an earlier developed manufacturing process modeling method in the virtual manufacturing (VM) technology. The primary aim is to attach special manufacturability evaluation to modeling of mechanical products. A more or less generic process model is generated for a cluster of manufacturing tasks then manufacturing process entities are created by evaluation of the manufacturing process model using part, form feature, production environment, production planning and cost information. Petri net manufacturing process model representation is used. It has proved to be a versatile virtual manufacturing tool in manufacturing process planning, evaluation of manufacturability and in manufacturing environment design. A process model evaluation procedure is emphasized in the course of which feasibility and resource requirements of the manufacturing are revealed. Firstly, techniques of evaluation of manufacturability, the applied approach to integration of shape and manufacturing process modeling and the related virtual manufacturing concepts are introduced. The process model is outlined and earlier relevant publications of the authors are cited. Then problems and solutions at evaluating of process model in close connection with design and environmental changes are detailed. Following this, integration of the method into a comprehensive virtual manufacturing concept is explained. Finally, main issues and future research plans are concluded.
