Abstract

Research has shown that product design dictates 70% of product cost and 60% of product quality. In today's globally competitive environment, it is therefore imperative to minimize costs and reduce time to market for new products. This requires minimizing the design to manufacture cycle time, and creating designs which have considered life-cycle issues. In particular, the incorporation of manufacturing considerations early in the design process offer the potential for substantial savings in both time and costs. The process by which machines and tools are selected is part of this design consideration. This paper presents a framework for design evaluation of sheet metal products for machine/tool selections. The method is based on design feature information and an object oriented approach for the translation of design features to manufacturing features. This portion of the process plan will serve to inform the designer early in the design process of costly manufacturing requirements.
