    Dual-head placement machines, which operate according to a highly complex logic, are commonly used in circuit-card assembly lines to place large components with a high degree of accuracy. The purpose of this paper is to present a unique approach for optimizing the picking operations of a dual-head placement machine with the ultimate goal of improving the efficiency of assembly operations.

    New multi-axis satellites allow camera imaging parameters to be set during each time slot based on competing demand for images, specified as rectangular requested viewing zones over the camera's reachable field of view. The single frame selection (SFS) problem is to find the camera frame parameters that maximize reward during each time window. We formalize the SFS problem based on a new reward met...

    Hybrid timed Petri nets (HTPNs) are derived to study random topology and complexity multioperational production systems where parts of one type follow the same route to produce a final product. Each production system is first decomposed into a fundamental multiproductive machine, multiassembly and multidisassembly modules, followed by derivation of their corresponding HTPN models. The overall syst... View full abstract»

  • Diagnosis of repeated failures for discrete event systems with linear-time temporal-logic specifications

    In our earlier work, we introduced a state-based approach for the diagnosis of repeatedly occurring failures in discrete event systems (DESs). Since temporal logic provides a simpler way of specifying system properties; in this paper, a temporal-logic-based approach for diagnosing the occurrence of a repeated number of failures is developed. Linear-time temporal-logic (LTL) formulae are used to re... View full abstract»

    Due to the rapid development of computer and sensing technology, many measurements of process variables are readily available in manufacturing processes. These measurements carry a large amount of information about process conditions. It is highly desirable to develop a process monitoring and diagnosis methodology that can utilize this information. In this paper, a statistical process control moni... View full abstract»

  • An approach to minimize build errors in direct metal laser sintering

    This paper discusses the effect of geometric shape on the accuracy of direct metal laser sintering (DMLS) prototypes. The percentage shrinkages due to different shapes are investigated and their empirical relationship is determined. A new speed-compensation (SC) method is proposed to reduce uneven shrinkage affected by the two-dimensional geometric shape at each layer. From case studies conducted,... View full abstract»

  • A scheme for mapping tolerance specifications to generalized deviation space for use in tolerance synthesis and analysis

    Publication Year: 2006, Page(s):81 - 91
    Cited by:  Papers (2)

    Tolerances impose restrictions on the possible deviations of features from their nominal sizes/shapes. These variations of size/shape could be thought of as deviations of a set of generalized coordinates defined at some convenient point on a feature. Any tolerance specification for a feature imposes some kind of restrictions or constraints on its deviation parameters. These constraints, in general... View full abstract»

  • Generating variational geometry of a hole with composite tolerances

    Tolerance is almost ubiquitous during the whole product life. However how to effectively embody and interpret the semantics of tolerance in three-dimensional computer-aided design systems is still an open issue. Variational geometry is recognized as one of the most promising solution for it. And the methods for systematically and efficiently generating the variational geometries of all kinds of ge...

  • Computational thermal fluid models for design of a modern fiber draw process

    Many manufacturing processes require time-consuming setups before automation can begin. This paper investigates the applications of distributed-parameter computational thermal-fluid models for automating the design of a continuous manufacturing system, which aims at reducing process setup time. A generic draw process is used as an example throughout this paper, which involves practically all modes... View full abstract»

    Motivated by a need for a method to derive practical and physical-based dynamic models that capture the essential characteristics of an optical-fiber draw process for precision control of diameter uniformity, we extend the Karhunen-Loeve decomposition technique with a Galerkin procedure to derive a reduced-order model (ROM) for a multivariable distributed-parameter system. We validated the ROM der... View full abstract»
