Paper Abstract

In previous papers, [BACUS 2000 4186-13 and BACUS 2001 4562-20], developments in hierarchical fracturing and in distributed processing in the CATSTM tool were studied. This study investigates the advances in the CATSTM tool that combine hierarchical fracturing and distributed processing. Time-consuming processes such as PSM, OPC and de-slivering logic for shaped beam machines are addressed. The attendant hierarchical fracturing commands are reviewed and commands associated with distributed processing are introduced. Hierarchical and flat data fracture times are compared, as well as threaded fracture and distributed fracture times. The resulting benefits are tabulated.
