AbstractThis paper describes how some mold manufacturing problems can be addressed by intelligent manufacturing technologies. It proposes concurrent engineering that allows groups of people to share resources and core competencies and gain competitive advantage by developing products faster and cheaper. The framework consists of running high-end applications such as design, planning and analysis for the mold and die industry over the Internet. This would allow designers to communicate, share knowledge and foresee problems, validate specifications, simulate casting and visualize results. The entire system would be enriched by a knowledge engine that would provide advice on material selection, shrinkage, cavity layout,draft angles and cooling channels.
