Nowadays, engineering manufacturing industry and advance manufacturing has been influenced by Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM). This evolution spark-up new computer software to assist the industry needs such as Computer Aided Design (CAD), CAM and Virtual Computer Numerical Control (V-CNC) software. Numerical Control (NC) plays the major role in attaining command for NC machine in manufacturing industry. The usage of NC machine in fabricating engineering product is increased because it can develop any sophisticated product. In manufacture any engineering product, wasted raw material and high capital cost become the main concern in producing a product prototype. So, this project is mainly to optimize parameter values in fabricating Sport Rim product using Unigraphics NX2 software. Microsoft Office Excell 2003 software is used to analyze data pertaining in descriptive statistics that is the change of machining parameter versus to time, in order to get the optimized parameter. At the end of this project, the result using Unigraphics NX2 will be compared with Mastercam 8.1.1 software based on same data and design. The last output is simulation of machine process, Sport Rim machining animation using sUnigraphics NX2 software and the prototype product with full machining process using the design specification. From this research, it is hoped that future manufacturing engineer can identify the crucial optimized parameters in order to obtain high quality product in minimum time frame.
