    Abstract

    An important process-planning task in sheet-metal manufacturing is the determination of bending sequences for individual components. Computer-aided generation of these sequences, as part of a computer-aided process-planning (CAPP) system, can relieve the workload of process-planning departments, this being especially important in small batch manufacturing environments. This paper discusses the functions that have to be performed during the determination of bending sequences, focusing on accuracy aspects. The generation of bending sequences is also put into the broader perspective of an integrated CAPP system such as PART-S, which is under development presently in the author's laboratory.
