In this paper, boundary of joint design is considered to start from the division of the structure and ends at deciding detailed information to execute the welding operation. In order to realize this, the scenario for multistep optimization of joint information is proposed.
Many conventional welding studies aim to improve element technologies of welding. However, “System Oriented Thinking” has been paid strong attention to in recent years. Therefore, systematization and the informationalization of the welding is necessary.
Process model of joint and welding design is defined based on the process analysis of the welding and the joint design. Moreover, information processing methods are proposed to support the generation, analysis and evaluation of the design plans.
Many conventional welding studies aim to improve element technologies of welding. Here, systematization and the informationalization of the welding is examined in this study.
