AbstractWith increasing necessity to integrate CAD and CAM, it is necessary to develop more accurate models for predicting the performance of manufacturing processes. Conventionally, process parameters are selected by the process planner based on his experience. For CAD-CAM integration to be meaningful, it should be possible to arrive at the same decisions using computer models for that process. The end milling process is selected for such modeling. The parameters considered are process variables, cutter geometry, cutter material properties, workpiece material properties, workpiece geometry and location and properties of inclusions (if any) in the material. Dynamic Model for end milling is developed and successive iterations are performed to arrive at the speed and feed required to generate a given surface finish and tolerance.
