Towards a Web-Based Framework for Computer-Aided Manufacturing
MetadataShow full item record
Computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) helps to see how manufacturing processes could be executed checking if desired products can be made and at what cost. Usually, a 3D model of a targeted product is used as one of the inputs for CAM. Although actively used for some application domains and despite of well-developed CAM technologies and tools frameworks, further acceptance of CAM is hindered by, on one hand, a restricted access and, on another, knowledge needed to use CAM tools and methods. This article outlines a concept for web-based integration framework architecture for CAM. It defines main stakeholders and their roles in efficient product development and virtual commissioning.
