Abstract

Sustainability within manufacturing is an increasingly important topic globally. One course of action being explored is to produce more parts ‘right first time’ so supporting an increasingly sustainable manufacturing process. This paper explores the Renishaw “productive process pyramid” and considers how it can be integrated into the ALM process. The pyramid is currently used to identify how layers of control can systematically remove variation from conventional machining processes. This application is focussed to consider how the variables that occur within the ALM manufacturing process can impact on the quality of the parts mechanically and geometrically. This approach can then inform the process foundation and process setting stages and enhance levels of in-process control.
