Paper Abstract

An expert system has been developed which is capable of selecting appropriate cutting tools and determining required machining parameters for milling operations. One feature of this system which distinguishes it from conventional applications of expert systems is that it uses information stored in database files. This causes the existence of a limited umber of expertise rules stored in the knowledge base; bringing up the advantage of shorter running time for the system. Another advantage of this system is its ability to retrieve required information from computer-aided design (CAD) systems through an input file, run the program, and restore the resulting information in an output file without any user interaction. These advantages make it an ideal system to be used in computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) systems.
