Formal Representation, Verification and Implementation of Rule Based Information Systems for Integrated Manufacturing
Full control and management of information flow has not yet been achieved, mainly because of the data inconsistencies and lack of established functional relationships among different manufacturing application systems. ...
A Step-Wise Specification of a Manufacturing System Using Petri Nets
Our experience, mainly based on two recently conducted real-life studies for some European companies, reveals that a natural way to proceed with the modeling and specification of large manufacturing system is to decompose ...
Manufacturing Cell Design Using Simulated Annealing: an Industrial Application
In this paper, we give a brief summary of simulated annealing procedures used to solve combinatorial optimization problems. We then present the manufacturing cell design problem which consists of designing cells of limited ...
Some Open Problems in the Design and Use of Modern Production Systems
During the past two decades, manufacturing systems have moved towards automation, integration and modularity. These trends will certainly continue in the future due to the constraints of the market and to evolution of the ...
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 ...
An Efficient Heuristic in Manufacturing Cell Formation for Group Technology Applications.
In this paper, the problem of finding a good decomposition of the manufacturing system into manufacturing cells, that can be assigned to part families is addressed. A simple twofold heuristic algorithm capable of minimizing ...
