In modern manufacturing systems, the complex nature of industrial processes, the need for quality products to continuously shorten lead times and the effort to achieve greater productivity is pushing both researchers and practitioners to achieve enhanced process control of the manufacturing method of Computer Numerically Controlled (CNC). Existing companies do not use cycle time for efficiency to check mate the activities of their staffs whether they are truly utilizing the working hours, which results in low productivity. CNC machines are classified into milling, lathe, drilling, routers etc. which uses a computer to electronically control the motion of one or more axes on the machine. In this work, a novel model was developed to improve modern technology of CNCs. Furthermore, Structured System Analysis and Design Methodology (SSADM) is used in this approach. The developed system was implemented with MAZATROL CNC simulator. The results obtained demonstrate that the MAZATROL CNC simulator is a perfect addition to the classroom and an essential component for maximum exposure to MAZATROL CNC controls when the actual time of the machine is reduced. This work could be beneficial to major players and stakeholders in the Oil and gas sector (upstream and downstream inclusive), to production and manufacturing companies, to SMEs and to any other organization that deals on extracting current CNC information.
