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 ...
Manufacturing Feature Instances: Which Ones to Recognize?
Manufacturing features and feature-based representations have become an integral part of research on manufacturing systems, largely due to their ability to model correspondences between design information and manufacturing ...
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 ...
Design of Material Flow Networks in Manufacturing Facilities
In this paper we consider the design of material handling flow paths in a discrete parts manufacturing facility. A fixed-charge capacitated network design model is presented and two efficient heuristics are proposed to ...
