Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Artificial Intelligent (AI) techniques has been widely employed to enable intelligent process planning systems. In this paper an intelligent process planning system for rotational parts entitled XPLAN-R is introduced. XPLAN-R is based on the DCLASS tree processor and interfaced with a relational database system R:BASE System V which stores and retrieves data in form of tables. The architecture of the system and the information flow diagram are illustrated showing the working steps of the system and the relationship between DCLASS and R:BASE V. A hybrid approach for knowledge representation by combination of rule-driven and frame-driven approaches is provided. Three examples from different part families are discussed to show the function of the system.
