Abstract: The integration of design and manufacturing poses to the researchers in the fields of CAD, CAM and CIM a series of challenges. This paper introduces a methodology and a prototype system that allows for the integration of product design with manufacturing process planning. The task is achieved through an intelligent CAD-CAPP-CAFP environment where a designed model from the CAD system can be analysed, and manufacturing process plans with specifications of machining and fixturing methods can be automatically determined. The manufacturing information of a part required for process and fixture planning is extracted from the 3D geometric model and the 2D engineering drawing, thereby both geometric and non-geometric attributes of a part can be obtained. An integrated approach to process and fixture planning is adopted to ensure that the process plan for a machined part is generated on the basis of a workable fixture plan. The overall integration is achieved through the underlying unified logical representation.
