Abstract: The basic concept described in this paper is the application that enables to generate technological data for machine design series of types. The data is generated in the traditional form (operation and instruction sheets) and codes for numerically controlled machine tools. The model of transformation is based on the developed theory of technological similarity using relational databases. The theory of similarity is based on the theory of physical similarity (Gendarz, 2002; Rząsiński, 2015). The model in the theory of similarity of construction and technology is the construction and technology standard. An elaborated program based on the theory of construction and technological similarities supports the process of creating technological documentation. It is also possible to generate the numerical control (NC) code for the numerically controlled machine tools.
Keywords: technology; computer programs; modular series; databases.
