Assembly and Inspection Integration


Concurrent engineering of flexible assembly and just-in-time demands require solutions for rapid analysis and decisions in response to on-going changes. Projects in this area apply graphic-based, logic-based, and analysis model-based techniques to solve specific integration problems in flexible assembly and other facilities. Effect of communication, distributed control, and new inspection technologies including MEMS are investigated.
