Development of the Optimized Manufacturing Process Model by "TAGUCHI METHOD"
Authors tried to construct multimedia base support system of the manufacturing process with use of the knowledge base and the inference engine on the www server. This knowledge database systematized the knowledge which was obtained from the document and the skilled engineer as much as possible by using a knowledge engineering technique. However, it is difficult for beginner to find the best processing condition under the condition of the material, the machine and the tool on grinding operation by using the conventional database. Especially, when they encountered the manufacturing condition which is not built into the conventional data base, the past optimum conditions cannot be obtained from the expert system. The best method of obtaining the optimum conditions as the solution of this problem is to execute some experiments for this new case. This research proposed the system, which presented a minimum combination of the multi factor experiments for the best manufacturing condition search by using the Taguchi method. We were able to obtain the best condition to use the proposed robust engineering by only 18 times.
