This paper describes the development of a process planning module for an integrated product and process design (IPPD) tool which automates the design and manufacture of microwave modules. Specifically, this paper presents a process template that is used to interface with multi-objective optimization techniques to create a planner that can consider alternative designs based in process yields, cost, and manufacturing and purchasing lead times. The integration of the planner and the tradeoff optimization modules provides the designer immediate feedback on cost and productivity through generation and evaluation of alternative designs early in the design stage.
