Achieving high performance of machining production systems requires the use of multi-axis machine tools. In order to maximize the performance of multi-axis machine tools, micro process planning for creating machining data is important. Many researches on micro process planning mainly focused on 3-axis machining. As promising approaches among them, a micro process planning system was proposed that reuses actual machining cases and analyzes case data to derive the necessary rules. However, it is not always effective for multi-axis machining, because enough case data are not collected for micro process planning of a specific multi-axis machine tool. In this study, a digital twin of multi-axis machine tool in cyberspace is proposed to collect real and virtual machining case data for micro process planning.
