Design to simplicity: How to improve the flexibility, changeability and efficiency of assembly systems through systematic complexity reduction
MetadataShow full item record
Modern assembly systems are increasingly required to be flexible and adaptable to changing market demands, which adds to their structural and operational complexity. Starting from the Axiomatic Design based complexity theory a procedure is presented in this paper that provides methodological guidance in the systematic complexity reduction and in the development of efficient, flexible and changeable assembly systems. With the help of a practical application, the validity of the approach is illustrated.
