    Fixtures are used in manufacturing to secure working devices. They help insure conformity, accuracy, efficiency, and interchangeability; their reliability is crucial. This book introduces and implements a new methodology for more flexible fixture design and manufacturing processes, and develops the supporting technologies for automation and fixture planning using object oriented platforms. It also presents an integrated solution with Computer Aided Design (CAD) applications.

    Computer-Based Design and Features. Methodologies of Feature Representations. Feature Extraction Techniques. Data Transfer in CAD/CAM Systems. Automatic Feature Recognition. Computer Aided Process Planning. Integration System for Fixture Layout Design. Application of an Integrated System for Process and Fixture Planning.
