Reynore raper Manufacturing Interfaces

Summary: Reynore raper
Manufacturing Interfaces
F. J. A. M. van Houten, University of Twente
The paper identifies the changing needs and requirements with respect to the interfacing of
manufacturing functions. It considers the manufacturing system, its components and their relationships
from the technological and logistic point of view, against the background of concurrent engineering.
Design- and manufacturing features are considered to become the basic elements for both internal and
external communication between manufacturing functions. The increasing level of automation on the shop
floor requires a much more formal communication at a high level of detail. Together with the increasing
need for flexibility and the resulting decrease of batch sizes, this demands a much closer integration
of production planning, process planning and shop floor control. Improvement of communication in
combination with the use of feed-back data from the shop floor can substantially increase the
effectiveness of the planning and consequently reduce the time pressure on the manufacturing system and
its operators. Planning and control of auxiliary tasks and resources like tool and fixture preparation,
machine set-up, material preparation, etc. increases due date reliability and quality and lowers
production cost.
