[“All-embracing Manufacturing Technology” is a system that introduces flexibility and agility to production planning. Properly implemented, it automatically dissolves constraints, bottlenecks, and disruptions while maintaining simplicity of procedures. In this setting, no decision is finalized...
[The purpose of process planning is to set a routing that will transform raw material into the form specified and defined by the engineering drawing. It is generally based on human skill and intuition. A routing, once set, may be revised only by a process planner. This robs the manufacturing...
[Production planning is by nature a very simple task. However, traditional production planning systems and notions make these systems very complex and unproductive as decisions are being made too early in the manufacturing process. This chapter presents a different approach, one that introduces...
[This chapter is an extension of Chap. 3 in which a dynamic system that integrates process planning with production management was presented. The philosophy of this system is that routing is a variable. A production planner, based on knowledge of customer orders and plant load, decides—at the...
[Product specification as well as product design are innovative tasks and depend on designer creativity. They are responsible for the success of the company’s products, therefore they are entitled to perform this task as they find fit.]
[Product design and process planning are the two most important tasks of the manufacturing process. They incur over 80% of the processing cost and account for 30% of the lead time. The designer’s main effort is devoted to concept design, supported by draftsmen who fill in minor details.]
[A roadmap manufacturing system is basically a process that begins with only engineering input and then progresses under management direction through a variety of stages to its conclusion. Its main feature is the ability to generate routing and scheduling online without a need for the continued...
