Class: Computerized LAyout Solutions Using Simulated Annealing
A new method (Computerized LAyout Solutions using Simulated annealing - CLASS) that considers the inter-cell and intra-cell layout problems in a cellular manufacturing environment is presented. It addresses the relative ...
Manufacturing Cell Formation Under Random Product Demand
The performance of cellular manufacturing systems is intrinsically sensitive to demand variations and machine breakdowns. A cell formation methodology that addresses, during the shop design stage, system robustness with ...
A PDES Model for Microwave Modules
This paper presents a novel application of the Layered Electrical Product (LEP) model of the PDES (Product Data Exchange specification using STEP) standard. All three levels of the LEP model are developed for a typical ...
Manufacturing Cell Formation with Multiple, Functionally Identical Machines
A comprehensive methodology for the formation of manufacturing cells in an environment consisting of unique as well as multiple, functionally identical machines is presented in this paper. The proposed method presupposes ...
Cell Controllers: Analysis and Comparison of Three Major Projects
There is a critical need to achieve Computer Integrated Manufacturing, to link the factory-level functions (Product Design, Process Planning and Manufacturing Resource Planning) with the manufacturing functions (Parts ...
