Manufacturing process planning under a product lifecycle management approach


The Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) concept may be used to align Knowledge Management with Manufacturing Process Planning -- This paper presents an ongoing research in the use of a PLM tool to support the process planning of machining processes, including High Speed Machining (HSM) -- The project integrates a novel and competitive PLM solution for emerging markets, such as developing countries or Small and Medium Enterprises (SME) -- A module for managing CAD/CAM information under a PLM approach is proposed and its implementation is described to clarify the Manufacturing Process Planning under a PLM environment -- The paper reports the experience using the tool and discusses opportunities and pitfalls in its use
