Simulation of the Manufacturing Process, Generation of a Model of the Manufactured Parts
Designing a new product in an industrial context supposes to be certain to be able to produce it according to a level of quality and controlled cost. To achieve this goal, it is necessary to simultaneously design the product and the process of production and to be able to simulate the envisaged process in order to predict the productivity and the quality that can be obtained. The proposed method is based on the generation of a virtual model of the manufactured parts (model MMP). The deviations of the manufactured surfaces of the MMP are expressed compared to the nominal part. These deviations are collected by simulation of the suggested manufacturing process. The range of variation of these deviations represents the 3d capabilities of the manufacturing means.
