Event Graphs for Modeling and Evaluating Modern Production Systems
Very few Mathematical Tools are available to study the dynamics of discrete manufacturing systems. Petri Nets, and in particular a special type of Petri Nets called Timed Event Graphs, seem to be of special interest for ...
Class: Computerized LAyout Solutions Using Simulated Annealing
A new method (Computerized LAyout Solutions using Simulated annealing - CLASS) that considers the inter-cell and intra-cell layout problems in a cellular manufacturing environment is presented. It addresses the relative ...
Manufacturing Cell Formation with Multiple, Functionally Identical Machines
A comprehensive methodology for the formation of manufacturing cells in an environment consisting of unique as well as multiple, functionally identical machines is presented in this paper. The proposed method presupposes ...
Manufacturing Cell Formation in the Case of Multi-Manufacturing Processes
The determination of a good decomposition of a manufacturing system into manufacturing cells, when various manufacturing processes are available for each type of product, is addressed in this paper. We propose a simple ...
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 ...
