A New Class of Petri Nets for Modeling, Planning and Scheduling of Flexible, Manufacturing Systems
This work addresses the modeling, verification, planning and scheduling problems of non-cycle discrete systems with emphasis on Flexible Manufacturing Systems. We introduce a special type of Petri nets, the Conflict-Free ...
Complexity of Production Management in a Petri Net Environment
The objective of this paper is to show that Petri nets facilitate a comprehensive approach to production management and reduce the complexity of the problems involved at the expense of some constraints imposed on the ...
Fractal Geometry Applied to On-line Monitoring of Surface Finish
Surface finish of machined parts determines the functionality of the product and also the machining requirements for making the parts. On-line monitoring of surface finish has been an active area of machining research. ...
Feature Recognition for Manufacturability Analysis
While automated recognition of features has been attempted for a wide range of applications, no single existing approach possesses the functionality required to perform manufacturability analysis. In this paper, we present ...
