    Increasing Adaptability of Assembly Planning and Control with Embedded Decision-Making Capability2009In: Transactions of the North American Manufacturing Research Institution of SME, ISSN 1047-3025, Vol. 37, p. 533-540Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In our previous work, a framework and a new methodology for adaptive assembly process planning using function block (FB) concept was introduced. Function blocks are adopted to deal with dynamic job shop assembly floors, where product-mix often in small batches contributes to manufacturing uncertainty, making adaptability an important item on a company's wish list. FB-enabled assembly planning and control enables not only adaptive decision making but effective plan execution. Following our previous work, this paper reports the development of simulating a function block communication network in the Matlab Simulink environment and demonstrating the implementation of the methodology through an example.

    Two-Stage Hybrid Adaptive Assembly Layout Planning2010In: Transactions of the North American Manufacturing Research Institution of SME, ISSN 1047-3025, Vol. 38, p. 735-742Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The manufacturing environment today is highly turbulent. Hence, the potential to alter factory layout has transformed the layout problem from considering long-term material handling costs to considering essential requirements, such as adaptability and proactive responsiveness to dynamic changes. This is beyond the costs of material handling and machine relocation when reconfiguring the layout. As continuation of the authors’ previous work, this paper proposes to incorporate function block methodology in dealing with the layout issues in the frequently changing environment of job-shop assembly operations so as to increase the autonomy and adaptability of the assembly operations against changes.
