A Chronological Framework for Virtual Sheet Metal Assembly Design
Paper in proceedings, 2009
In this paper, a chronological framework for virtual sheet metal assembly design is presented. The framework conveys the order, in which design parameters, that influence geometrical quality and equipment utilization, need to be introduced to ensure that each design parameter is analytically determined. The order is significant, as design parameters usually are prerequisital to start analysis of subsequent design parameters. Recent progress within product life cycle management and the advent of efficient analysis tools targeting most of the influencing design parameters makes a holistic approach to sheet metal assembly design feasible. The chronological framework provides a roadmap in this effort.
