STEP-NC is used to transfer machining data between STEP-NC compliant Computer Aided Design (CAD), Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) and Computer Numerical Controller (CNC). It overcomes G&M code weakness which has thousand lines of codes but none of them define the machining process. In order to create a complete chain of STEP-NC system to be a new way of producing product in manufacturing environment, a new CNC machine and CAM software that are compliant to STEP-NC has to be developed. Internationally the research and development of STEP-NC has gain many achievement until now, but there is still no commercial STEP-NC system that are fully working in producing variety of features. This research focusing on the software development, named as GEN-M. The software that has been successfully developed are capable to generate code for drilling referring to selected case study from Annex F (Example 1) in ISO 14649 Part 11.
