Research on Collaborative Manufacturing Process Design System Based on Workflow and Web
In order to automate the manufacturing process design and shorten the design lifecycle, a visible manufacturing process design system is put forward. In this system, the workflow technology is used to manage the procedure of manufacturing process design. In this paper, a typical procedure of manufacturing process design is analyzed. Based on this analysis, the structure of the system and the interfaces to each other are also introduced. Furthermore the key technologies that are needed in actualizing the system are analyzed, and an application of this system is provided.
