Process selection as a part of CAPP has captured significant attention in CAPP research. Procedures have been developed for backward and forward algorithms in process selection. Most of these procedures lack the complete integration of process selection into CAPP system. In this paper, we present the results of the development and prototype implementation for process selection module for hole making operations for integration with Math Based Manufacturing System already in use in industrial partner. We have developed architecture and implemented module for rule-based machining process selection of hole making operations. The architecture enables the interface from the Process Selection prototype to Math Based Manufacturing System (APPS). The prototype also includes the user interface for interaction with the process selection procedure. Actions for starting prototype from APPS, performing process selection steps and sending the result back to APPS have been developed and implemented.
