IMPROVEMENT OF PROCESS PLANNING IN LHB BOGIEBY SCHEDULING MACHINING OPERATION
The production research unrestricted has requested systematization and deeper empathetic of industrial process planning. This paper subsidizes with a flow chart describing the Process Planning (PP), in consequence of the methodological studies. The flow chart contains process planning activities and information drifts between these activities. The research has been accomplished in an industrial environment for high volume with low cost of machining in fabrication of Linke Hofmann Busch (LHB) bogie frame. Though LHB bogie frame fabrication has many distinctive features, the fabrication sequence of frame categories has been arrange to reduce the lead time generally applicable to precision fabrication of many kinds of railway parts in Bhilai Engineering Corporation, Bhilai.
