MESEGUER, Amparo  and  GONZALEZ, Francisco. Functional Model of Cutting Tool Management. Inf. tecnol. [online]. 2006, vol.17, n.5, pp.3-8. ISSN 0718-0764.

This paper presents a functional structure for cutting tool management, integrated through Computer Aided Process Planning (CAPP) and part scheduling. The proposal is based on the capacity of CAPP to generate tool alternatives in machining operations. The tool manager solves interferences among tools, and each operation has a set of tool alternatives compatible with part scheduling. Tool alternatives permit a flexible tool management and the capacity to intervene in case of interruptions to production.

Keywords : tool management; planning; flexible manufacturing; CAPP.
