Contribution à l'intégration produit : processus de fabrication, application au domaine de la forge

Abstract : Several reasons lead to design a manufacturable part as quickly as possible and without many modifications. We can cite the evolution and the globalization of the market, the decrease of batch sizes, the reduction in the design and lead times, the fact that the product cost is essentially engaged at the design time. In this context, the methods and tools for concurrent engineering intervene. This thesis concerns more particularly with the formalization and the exploitation of the links that exist between the product and the process plan. A method has been defined to support the progressive design of the part and its associated process plan. A computer tool that supports this method has been specified. During the development of this computer tool, two ideas have been considered to represent and exploit the knowledge: a formalism based on an ontology associated to a classification process, or a second formalism based on an arborescent representation of the process plans associated to a pruning process. This last representation is called “process plan scheme”. A case study has been presented to validate the method by using the above mentioned computer tool. This work has been applied to forging domain, considering the specificities of this manufacturing area (especially the need to consider the part more globally with respect to machining). Keywords: forging process, concurrent engineering
