- Enterprises can benefit from detailed manufacturing / part information
- Leverage already available information to improve product quality
- Increase value in collaborative e-Work networks
- Identification of partsĄŻ attributes for re-workability, re-
manufacturing, and recycling
- DFAD: assembly-oriented design of the product and the assembly/disassembly
design for re-use and remanufacturing; is essential to the life-cycle
engineering approach (Nof and Chen, 2003)
- Enable matching of robot capabilities and tasks to be performed
- CRP-I goals:
- Operational: match tool and fixture to task requirements
and their availability
- Physical: match ability of robot to task requirements
- Geometric: determine capability of robot to execute the
trajectory for assembly
- Extended CRP (ECRP)
- DFA principles enable better assembly planning but do not
guarantee that conflicts and errors do not occur
- ECRP uses the output from the CRP-I and CRP-II to detect
and control conflicts and errors (Nof and Chen, 2003)
- Mcr methodology (Lara and Nof, 2003)
- NEFUSER methodology (Avila-Soria, 1999)
