Objectives

The objective of COMPLAN is to develop an integrated system for concurrent process planning, scheduling and shop-floor control based on non-linear plans (ie process plans containing manufacturing alternatives) for small-batch manufacture of mechanical parts.

The following modules will form the COMPLAN system:

A pilot demonstration and evaluation are foreseen by a machine tool company (LVD) acting as a pilot end-user. The results will be incorporated in products marketed by vendor consortium members.
