Modeling of machining using relationships between features

Research output: Contribution to journalConference article


Integration of engineering activities in advanced, intelligent computing assisted environments constitutes one of the most active research interests in engineering modeling. This is because high level modeling techniques are required and these techniques must be suitable for integration in comprehensive product models. Existing application oriented master model concepts and standards as STEP can serve this purpose. However, some important models and their relationships with other models have not made available. One of these is model of machining process of mechanical parts that is associative with all of the related models in a comprehensive product model. Authors propose a model that offers full associativity with form feature based part models so that creating of part models can be done simultaneously with analysis of machinability. Authors of this paper refused earlier solutions as application of separate design and machining features and proposed the application of a second associative reordered feature sequence for machining purpose. Then fuse or split of the listed shape modifications are applied to fulfill demands of the machining process. The paper is organized as follows. An introduction of the feature based concepts are followed by an outline of the applied modeling method. Following this creating and handling of Petri net model representations are detailed. After a discussion on application of the results, main characteristics of the modeling are concluded.
