Development of a classification and generation approach for innovative technologies
Entwicklung einer Klassifikations- und Generierungsmethode für innovative Technologien
This paper considers the state of the art and analyses five existing classification principles for technological and manufacturing processes aiming at the part and product formation. The proposed energetic-information model describes the generation of technological schemes and processes, based on the system description for structural conversion, transfer and interaction of material, energy and information. Classification principles for technological processes and their structural description generate classes, types and procedures (methods). A generation procedure and mechanism for innovative technological processes is developed. Approved classification of manufacturing processes for DIN8580, NISTIR 7913, according to Todd, Paul De Garmo, by Ashby are particular cases of the proposed classification approach. The proposed approach and process classification system is forming an image of DIN8580. The classification, generation and analysis approach for manufacturing technologies applies for the creation of innovative procedures, manufacturing equipment and systems.
