CAD/CAM feature-based manufacturing (FBM) approaches allow us to automatically generate toolpaths, recognize machining features, and define the best or preferred machining process for each of them based on predefined rules. Companies need to extend the product lifecycle management environment in order to be able to make explicit and manage manufacturing rules based on industrial best practice. This paper presents a possible solution to optimize FBM information management and integration within the product lifecycle. A data model extension, covering new items such as “manufacturing rules” and “tool setting preferences”, and a new methodology for rules management and deployment are proposed. View this paper.
