Feature recognition is a discipline focusing on the design and implementation of algorithms for detecting manufacturing information such as holes, slots, etc. in a solid model. Automated feature recognition has been an active research area in solid modeling for many years, and is considered to be a critical component for CAD/CAM integration. These technical notes report the special panel session for feature recognition at the 17th ASME International Computers in Engineering Conference, held in Sacramento, CA, USA, Sept. 14-17, 1997. Four research groups participated in the pane session and reported the results of executing their feature recognition systems on a collected set of benchmark parts. The pana session aimed to be a catalyst for the feature recognition community to collaborate in establishing standard test parts and performance measures and in identifying and resolving research issues. Such an aim was successfully achi eved, and these notes report the pane sessi on.
