In order to ensure effective decisions are made at each stage in the design and manufacture process, it is important that software tools should provide sufficient information to support the decision making of both designers and manufacturing engineers. This requirement can be applied to fixturing where research to date has typically focused on narrow functional support issues in fixture design and planning. The research reported in this thesis has explored how models of fixturing information can be defined, within an integrated information environment, and utilised across product design as well as manufacture. The work has focused on the definition of fixturing information within the context of a wide-ranging model that can capture the full capability of a manufacturing facility.
