In order to determine valid production results in the area of NC-based tooling machine, complex simulation tools are used. The challenge is the calculation of the material removal, tool paths as well as valid setup positions of workpiece and periphery which leads mostly to high computational time. The descent of the computational effort includes a high portion of systems engineering. This contribution shows a theoretical concept to substitute complex simulation models by calculation models which observes the inverse kinematic behavior of the machine in combination with a NC-parser which estimates valid workpiece positions. The contribution compares model approaches of inverse kinematic problems considering 5 axis tooling machine to determine valid setup positions and minimize theoretical calculation effort.
