DEVELOPMENT OF A DECISION SUPPORT SYSTEM FOR COMPUTER AIDED PROCESS PLANNING SYSTEM

Manish Kumar

Abstract

A decision support system for Computer Aided Process Planning (CAPP) system has been designed, developed and implemented. The need to introduce decision support system for CAPP system arises specifically to solve the poorly structured stages in process planning such as determination of blank size, setup planning, operations planning in each setup, selection of machine tools, calculation of machining time etc. Decision Support System (DSS) is capable to support operations like turning, facing, tapering, arcing, grooving, filleting, chamfering, knurling, threading etc. The proposed system is capable to generating process plans for different types of rotational parts.
