This thesis describes research which is aimed at devising a framework for a feature based workshop oriented NC planning. The principal objective of this thesis is to utilize a feature based method which can rationalize and enhance part description and in particular part planning and programming on the shop-floor. This work has been done taking into account new developments in the area of shop floor programming. The importance of the techniques and conventions which are addressed in this thesis stems from the recognition that the most effective way to improve and enhance part description is to capture the intent of the engineering drawing by devising a medium in which the recurring patterns of turned components can be modelled for machining. Experimental application software which allows the user to describe the workpiece and subsequently generate the manufacturing code has been realized.
