    Variance component estimation algorithms, in conjunction with automated in-process measurement technology, can be effective tools for identifying and eliminating major sources of manufacturing variation in assembly processes. Whether a particular set of variation sources are diagnosable depends critically on how the sensor system is laid out. Diagnosability tests are mathematical in nature and pro... View full abstract»

    This paper describes a novel robotic end-effector and a method for grasping deformable objects with undefined shapes and geometry, such as sacks and bags. The first prototype end-effector, designed for applications in the U.S. Postal Service, is comprised of two parallel rollers with gripping surfaces in which the rollers are pushed toward each other. When the end-effector comes into contact with ... View full abstract»

    An advanced reconfigurable controller enhanced by a multiple model architecture is proposed as a tool to achieve fault tolerance in complex nonlinear systems. The most complete adaptive critic design, globalized dual heuristic programming (GDHP), constitutes a highly flexible nonlinear adaptive controller responsible for the generation of new control solutions for novel plant dynamics introduced b...

  • Modeling and performance evaluation of supply chains using batch deterministic and stochastic Petri nets

    Publication Year: 2005, Page(s):132 - 144
    Cited by:  Papers (31)

    Batch deterministic and stochastic Petri nets are introduced as a tool for modeling and performance evaluation of supply chains. The new model is developed by enhancing deterministic and stochastic Petri nets (DSPNs) with batch places and batch tokens. By incorporating stochastic Petri nets (SPNs) with the batch features, inhibitor arcs, and marking-dependent weights, operational policies of suppl... View full abstract»

    Overhaul and repair services are important segments of the remanufacturing industry, and are characterized by complicated disassembly, repair and assembly process plans, stochastic operations, and the usage of rotable inventory. In view of today's time-based competition, effectively scheduling such services and managing rotable inventory and uncertainties are becoming imperative to achieve on-time... View full abstract»

  • Dynamically optimal policies for stochastic scheduling subject to preemptive-repeat machine breakdowns

    We consider the problem of finding a dynamically optimal policy to process n jobs on a single machine subject to stochastic breakdowns. We study the preemptive-repeat breakdown model, i.e., if a machine breaks down during the processing of a job, the work done on the job prior to the breakdown is lost and the job will have to be started over again. Our study is built on a general setting, which al... View full abstract»

    This paper addresses multi-degree cyclic scheduling of two robots in a no-wait flowshop, where exactly r(r > 1) identical parts with constant processing times enter and leave the production line during each cycle, and transportation of the parts between machines is performed by two robots on parallel tracks. The objective is to minimize the cycle time. The problem is transformed into enumeration o... View full abstract»

    This paper addresses the problem of determining the instantaneous state of mobility and constraint of a general mechanism or assembly using screw theory. This problem has been attacked before by different methods with varying success. The method presented here is very simple and applies to many types of mechanisms, with one interesting exception. This exception also eludes the Griibler/Kutzbach cr... View full abstract»

    In this paper, a noble variable remote center compliance (VRCC) is developed. The VRCC has a simple structure to change the position of compliance center and to lock the VRCC. The VRCC consists of a top plate, a bottom plate and two modified elastomer shear pads (ESP). The modified ESP has a hole in its stiffness axis, and a stiffness adjusting rod (SAR) is inserted into the hole of the ESP. The s... View full abstract»

    Low-temperature polysilicon (LTPS) technology has drawn the attention of many display manufacturers because it has several potential advantages over amorphous thin-film-transistor liquid crystal display TFT LCD). The mapping operation matches one TFT and one color-filter (CF) glass plate together to form one LCD plate. Each plate contains a certain number of cells that are independent devices. The...
