In order to efficiently and properly manufacture parts to specification, it’s critical to define the manufacturing plan with up-to-date data. The manufacturing plan describes what is being manufactured, how it will be manufactured, what resources will be required and where it will be produced. In many cases, the plan consists of information that resides in various files created by the manufacturing planning department, including the part file, NC programs, shop documentation, tool lists, specifications and drawings. Because plans can be complex, plan data and processes must be properly managed and connected in an environment that all players in the manufacturing organization can access to communicate and collaborate, as well as locate the information they need.
Part Manufacturing Planner is based on the Teamcenter platform, and enables manufacturing engineers, NC programmers, tool designers and managers to work together to define manufacturing process plans. The process plan specifies the sequence of operations for manufacturing the part including links to all necessary data and instructions (for example, a roughing setup could include links to the work piece part file, posted output from NX CAM, tool list and work instructions). By keeping the plan and related data linked together, you are assured that the right people use the right data at the time it’s needed.
To help ensure that your process sequence is properly defined, Part Manufacturing Planner is equipped with visualization and reporting capabilities. You can analyze the impact of design changes on operations and update the process to reflect those changes. Machining data can be directly connected to computer numerical control (CNC) machines via integrated direct numerical control (DNC).
