The OKI-SURF system has been developed to make possible automatic preparation of control information necessary for the numerically controlled machining of parts of complex shape through use of high level macro-instructions. This language comprises a description of part shape, cutting method, and milling data, and its formats are APT like ones. The OKI-SURF system is designed with system modularization in mind. For a standardized part program, a specialized user's system can be generated by linking necessary modules with one another. By the specialized user's system is meant a system which can simplify the form of input and omit some part programming jobs and that it facilitate processor operation and optimize memory requirement. An account of OKI-SURF system application to various parts is presented, giving the background of system development and an outline of the system tailored mainly to marine propeller blades.
