Latest Advances in Function Block Enabled Adaptive Process Planning
2015 (English)In: Virtual Machining Process Technology, 2015Conference paper (Refereed)
Due to various changes and uncertainties on machining shop floors, flexibility and adaptability become the key factors for a company’s survival. Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are subject to higher uncertainties as they are facing small volumes and high product mix. This paper gives an overview of the recent advances in function block enabled adaptive process planning that can deal with the mentioned challenges. The function block enabled approach for process planning and CNC control has been studied through a case study. According to this approach, a process plan is generated at two different levels. The higher generic level which performs machine-neutral planning is achieved according to the enriched machining feature concept. The generic plan is then converted into a series of event-driven function blocks and then dispatched to function block enabled CNC controllers. The machine-specific resources are then applied at the controller level.
