Software development from theory to practical machining techniques
Abstract: In already optimized processes it may be challenging to find room for further improvement. The solution can be found in the advanced software and tools that support the digital manufacturing, all the way from planning and design to in-machining and machining analysis. This project the- sis focuses on developing a process methodology to transcribe Sandvik Coromant’s theories and knowledge about machining operation grooving into machine-readable formats. Various software development models have been analysed and a particular model inspired by the incremental and iterative process model was developed to match the context of this project. This project thesis describes the working methodology for gathering theories and translating them into machine-interpretable format. A working methodology developed in this project thesis succeeded in transcribing different human- readable theories such as people’s minds (experts within the field) and handbooks into a machine- interpretable format. The proposed algorithms for tool path generation was developed and imple- mented successfully through the integration of mathematical modelling. MATLAB and Siemens NX has been used to build a proof of concept environment.
