In this paper, an integrated system for computer aided engineering of cold forging, based on the development of a knowledge-based process planning system, is proposed. The system is integrated into a structure of computer software which combines the experience-based design guidelines and the science-based analysis and simulation. By using the proposed system, the manufacturing engineer can obtain an engineering solution between cold forged part design and part manufacture. The implemented system consists of cold forging process planning, plasticity analysis of the forging process, die design and die manufacture, and production simulation. Several industrial examples were given to demonstrate the concept of a proposed intelligent system.
