Considers the development of the automatic cutting tool selection system. Examines how the advent of knowledge‐based expert systems and CAD popularity has enabled wider availability of manufacturing process information, and the knowledge requirements for specifying optimal cutting tools in manufacturing environments where the number of machining operations makes the problem complex. Concludes that an ACTS expert system module can offer possibilities of total design systems when combined with CADCAM.
