The present study proposes a methodology and architecture appropriate for the generation of flexible systems for computer-aided process planning systems (CAPP) for mechanized parts. The method proposed gives importance to the following factors: system architecture, planning methodology, and information modules used for storage of data and knowledge. The results have been applied to the GF-CAPP system. It is concluded that the development of the GF-CAPP prototype, based on the present proposal and applied over a great variety of parts and production media, has proven to be viable and to have useful characteristics
