Even tough there are various kinds of CAD/CAM packages available on the market, there is no system developed for the basic estimations of machining processes, such as cutting time, material removal rate (MRR), feed rate, and spindle speed. Having such a system is important for a number of reasons: cost estimation, life cycle analysis, machine programming, tool and workpiece selection, production rate, and number of machining steps etc. In this paper, a knowledge-based tool (KBT), which is still under development, has been presented. The current development and its implementation are also given in the present paper.
