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 ...
Reducing Setup Cost by Automated Generation of Redesign Suggestions
All mechanical designs pass through a series of formal and informal redesign steps, involving the analysis of functionality, manufacturability, cost and other life-cycle factors. The speed and efficacy of these steps has ...
Design for Manufacture by Multi-Enterprise Partnerships
Recent world-wide political and financial events have intensified the need to renew the competitiveness of the US manufacturing industry. The means for enabling competitiveness include fast response to the market needs for ...
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 ...
