In this paper, the extended framework of the intelligent machine tool for 2.5 dimensional part machining is proposed. This system consists of three layers and simple interfaces using the machining features and "motion & process control package." In a case study, it is shown that the productivity can be improved without increasing the cutting force by the simulation.
