    The author examines synergetics, an interdisciplinary field of research that is concerned with the spontaneous formation of macroscopic spatial, temporal, or functional structures of systems by self-organization. When a system is controlled by control parameters, at specific values of those parameters the system may undergo qualitative macroscopic changes. The old state loses its stability, and in...

    Three manufacturing methods are considered: manual (people do the assembly tasks), soft automation (reprogrammable robots are used), and hard automation (specially designed machine tools are used). The discussion covers: uniaxis assembly, focusing on its suitability when used with the above methods; determining the manufacturing method before design; the resultant shift of decision-making power in...
