Manufacturing traceability automation using features and nc-functions
This paper addresses manufacturing traceability requirements specification and the automation of manufacturing data collection. The proposed approach is to link traceability requirements to feature data to take advantage of features as the kernel technology for CAD/CAM integration. The paper proposes a solution based on nc_functions that automates and integrates manufacturing traceability for STEP compliant CAD, CAM and CNC systems. The paper presents the new nc_functions and a prototype implementation.
