In manufacturing companies, technologists use CAD/CAM tools for NC programming. Feature based approaches enable to faster programming, but require advanced competences and a standardization too rigorous for real machining practices. It is necessary a data and manufacturing rules management environment, in which knowledge engineer can define the rules based on industrial best practice and CAM Experts can customize them for production requirements. A possible solution is to extend the FBM software module with an easy-to-use system that simplifies feature based rules management and deployment.
