Process planning plays a key role by linking CAD and CAM. Its front-end is feature recognition, but feature recognition research has not been in accord with the requirements of process planning. This paper presents an effort for integrating the two activities: feature-based machining sequence generation primarily based on tool capabilities. The system recognizes only manufacturable features by consulting the tool database, and simultaneously constructs dependencies among the features. Then, the A* algorithm is used to search for an optimal machining sequence by the aid of the feature dependencies and a manufacturing cost function
