AbstractCNC machining is one of the widely used manufacturing processes. Its flexibility and efficiency allows the production of low quantity or high volume parts cost effectively. However, the set-up of machining topology - the logical sequence of machining operations for different features in a part, is mostly reliant on the skill and experience of the CNC programmer. The experience and knowledge could diminish or disappear if the programmer leaves. An intelligent flexible knowledge base would be an ideal tool to preserve this knowledge and experience for the utilization for CNC programming. This paper describes the development of a machining topology knowledge base of an intelligent process planning system for the automation of CNC programming.
