    The integration of computer numerical control (CNC), metrology and three-dimensional CAD/CAM systems provides a powerful means of capturing geometrical data of complex solid objects for which no drawings exist. The captured geometry can then be modified, analysed and submitted for machining as desired. In this article, the effectiveness of such an integrated system is illustrated in the particular...

    Methods for automated process planning and NC programming are surveyed and classified into generic categories. Aspects of CAPP investigated include part definition methods, reasoning and search techniques used to generate process plans, both Al-based and traditional, and process planning languages. NC programming techniques have been categorised into those based on cell decomposition, volume/delta... View full abstract»

    Outlines a project that forms part of a Teaching Company Scheme involving the simulation of manufacturing systems. Particular emphasis has been given to the process of developing a simulation model capable of evaluating the operational characteristics of a material handling system operated within a Just-in-Time (JIT) environment. The main objective is to identify operational problems specific to t... View full abstract»

    A knowledge-based expert system for preliminary design of medium-rise buildings has been implemented with the ability to generate building configurations. The system was developed on GEPSE, a microcomputer-based expert system development tool, which provides an environment in which predicted objects are separate from the rule bases. The inference mechanism utilises forward chaining and meta-level ... View full abstract»
