Semigenerative process planning is based on the identification and modification of existing process plans from previous similar designs. It is based on the identification and matching of similar design features, typically referred to as classification of part families. This paper presents an attempt to develop an expert system model of the design process which can then automatically generate a classification code, providing a basis for the development of a process plan in a semigenerative fashion. Implementation of the model is in the LISP language on a personal computer.
