Design and development of computer aided knoeledge base system for non-symmetrical sheet metal forming process

Yarlagadda, Prasad K., Posinasetti, Praveen, Ma, Lin, & Ng, Jee Aik (2006) Design and development of computer aided knoeledge base system for non-symmetrical sheet metal forming process. In Global Congress on Manufacturing and Management, November 2006, Santos, Brazil.


A computer aided knowledge base system for non-symmetrical sheet metal forming process has been designed which helps selection and optimal process planning for non-symmetrical sheet metal operations. The software has three main modules, which are: threedimensional modelling module, blank design module and process planning module. Furthermore, the system provides appropriate instruction in guiding process plan for nonsymmetrical sheet metal as well. Yet, the system has some limitations in terms of consistency, flexibility and user friendliness for non technical background users. This paper also describes the methods which can improve the system consistency, flexibility and integrate program interface as well. Few approaches are carried out in order to customise and enhance its native ability. Since the existing system is operating in AutoCAD, mark-up and programming languages such as HTML, AutoLISP and VBA are implemented in order to solve these problems.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
