Computer-aided process planning CAPP is the use of computer technology to aid in the process planning of a part or product, in manufacturing. It provides for the planning of the process to be used in producing a designed part. Process planning is concerned with determining the sequence of individual manufacturing operations needed to produce a given part or product. Process planning in manufacturing also refers to the planning of use of blanks, spare parts, packaging material, user instructions manuals etc. The term "computer-aided production planning " is used in different contexts on different parts of the production process; to some extent CAPP overlaps with the term "PIC" production and inventory control. Process planning translates design information into the process steps and instructions to efficiently and effectively manufacture products.

Sadaiah, M. Int J Adv Manuf Technol 20, — Download citation. Issue Date : November Search SpringerLink Search. The proposed CAPP system has been divided into three modules. The first module is concerned with feature extraction. The second and third modules deal with planning the set-up, machine selection, cutting tool selection, cutting parameter selection, and generation of process plan sheet. The SolidWorks98 plus has been used for modelling, and feature extraction has been implemented using a program written in Visual Basic 6.
The speciality of the developed CAPP system is that it is linked with the CAD module and it extracts the majority of features automatically prior to process planning. The developed CAPP system has been tested with aerospace components.
The main feature of the proposed CAPP system is its ability to handle a variety of prismatic components and generate process plans for them. A case study has been included to highlight the potential of the CAPP system.
