      Abstract

      Understanding a machine tool’s capability is fundamental for applications where a high level of
      accuracy is required, such as aerospace manufacturing. Therefore, calibrating machine tools to International Standards is an important process and should be executed thoroughly. The calibration process requires firstly identifying the errors component of a machine tool, followed by the selection of an appropriate test method and instrumentation. The emphasis on minimising machine down-time requires expert knowledge to ensure that the calibration process is both complete and optimal. The paper shows the process of planning a machine tool calibration and is followed by a description of how using automated planning techniques will improve machine too calibration planning.
