NEW METHODS OF PRODUCT CLASSIFICATION FOR COMPUTER AIDED PROCESS PLANNING SYSTEMS
AbstractClassification of engineering parts is a very demanding activity especially in process planning. It is one of the important methods utilised in the group technology approach to computer aided process planning. This paper deals with a new method of classification, which extends the possibility of engineering part classification, especially for the process planning of non-cutting processes (forging, casting, etc.)
