Abstract

Composite component manufacturers are often faced with having to quote and produce products `Built-to-Print'. Often times polymer composite component blueprints/drawings/CAD files are designed under insufficient paradigms and mirror features common in metal components. The R&D work in intelligent decision support tools for composites focuses on the conceptual design stages. The conceptual composite assembly is discussed on the basis of detailed design studies or conceptual manufacturing process plans. The manufacturing process sequence includes: the composite fabrication processes used to produce the component; the machining and post-process steps that add features to components or subassemblies; and the bonding and fastening sequences.
