An approach to the on-line integration of process planning and production scheduling is reported. Based on a geometric modeller, a geometric analyser and a knowledge base, the process planner generates alternative process plans and provides automatic tool selection and calculation of the appropriate machining parameters. Time and cost estimations are input to the decision-making module in the production scheduling system that produces optimal scheduling decisions as well as a complete record of the actual state of the factory resources. An information flow, designed as a relational data model, maintains the interaction between the process planning and the production scheduling systems and provides the dynamic feedback to the process planner. Specific geometry features of the blank, the finished part and the cutting tools, and geometry features-based rules are stored in the database of a developed CAPP system by using a separate CAD interface. The integrated production planning and production scheduling system and the CAPP system were validated with rotational parts machining. © 1996 Springer-Verlag London Limited. (EN)
