Conceptual framework for creating customized modular CAPP system
AbstractInformation and communication technologies have a central role in the manufacturing system integration process. In this paper, a conceptual framework for the integration of available software applications is presented. Analysis of Croatian industrial enterprises is used to create a feasible computer aided process planning model. The suggested model uses the built-in ability of installed software for sharing information derived from processes with which they are connected. Information is then used for generating the optimal process plan for the current surroundings in the central CAPP module. Using the presented conceptual framework, modular CAPP solutions are created and customized to fit the needs of different manufacturing enterprises, taking into consideration the implementation costs and time.
