An integrated process planning approach for CNC machine tools
In view of the high investment and tooling cost of a CNC machining centre, the cutting and idle times should be optimised by considering the tool consumption and the non-machining time cost components. In this paper, we ...
Tool allocation and machining conditions optimization for CNC machines
In the literature, there exist many variations of machining economics problem in terms of modelling approaches and solution methodologies. However most of the existing studies focus on the single machining operation which ...
An exact tool allocation approach for CNC machines
(Taylor & Francis, 1999)
An exact approach is developed to determine the optimum machining conditions and tool allocation decisions simultaneously to minimize the total production cost on a CNC turning machine. There are multiple machining operations ...
Dynamic lot sizing and tool management in automated manufacturing systems
The overall aim of this study is to show that there is a critical interface between the lot sizing and tool management decisions, and these two problems cannot be viewed in isolation. We propose "ve alternative algorithms ...
Integrated scheduling and tool management in flexible manufacturing systems
(Taylor & Francis, 2001)
A multistage algorithm is proposed that will solve the scheduling problem in a flexible manufacturing system by considering the interrelated subproblems of processing time control, tool allocation and machining conditions ...
