Using Neural Networks to Generate Design Similarity Measures
This paper describes a neural network-based design similarity measure for a variant fixture planning approach. The goal is to retrieve, for a new product design, a useful fixture from a given set of existing designs and ...
A Genetic Algorithm for a Minimax Network Design Problem
This paper considers the problem of designing a network to transport material from sources of supply to sites where demand occurs. However, the demand at each site is uncertain. We formulate the problem as a robust discrete ...
Reducing Manufacturing Cycle Time during Product Design
This paper describes an approach that can reduce manufacturing cycle time during product design. Design for production (DFP) determines how manufacturing a new product design affects the performance of the manufacturing ...
