The development of a system for fixture design for metal cutting manufacturing is presented in this paper. The system provides selection and modification of previously designed fixture layouts, on the one hand, and new fixture layout designs on the other hand. The case-based reasoning technique was used for this system development. Additionally, the system provides optimization of fixture layout. The criteria used for optimization include productivity, accuracy and production costs. The paper presents the overall structure of applied methodology, description of particular system segments and their implementation in production industry. The paper concludes with final remarks, discussing advantages and disadvantages of the developed system, as well as the directions of future research.
