    An increasing trend toward product development in a collaborative environment has resulted in the use of various software tools to enhance the product design. This requires a meaningful representation and exchange of product data semantics across different application domains. This paper proposes an ontology-based framework to enable such semantic interoperability. A standards-based approach is us... View full abstract»

    We have developed a novel device to supply hydraulic power for anaerobic mobile robotic systems. This power source demonstrates the possibility of operation in oxygen-free environments, such as underwater or in space. Unlike the internal combustion engine, the design produces power on demand, eliminating idling when there is no load on the system. This monopropellant-powered free piston hydraulic ...

    Many modern spray deposition processes, such as spray painting or coating, are automated by using a robot to move an applicator in a series of passes over the surface being sprayed. Determining the robot path that creates the required coat thickness over the surface can be considered as an optimization problem, which traditionally has been solved in the spatial domain. In this paper, results from ... View full abstract»

    Spray forming is an emerging manufacturing process. The automated tool planning for this process is a nontrivial problem, especially for geometry-complicated parts consisting of multiple freeform surfaces. Existing tool planning approaches are not able to deal with this kind of compound surface. This paper proposes a tool-path planning approach which optimizes the tool motion performance and the t...

    This paper presents an integrated approach to design an assembly, fixture schemes, and an assembly sequence, such that the dimensional integrity of the assembly is insensitive to the dimensional variations of individual parts. The adjustability of critical dimensions and the proper constraining of parts during assembly process are the keys in achieving the dimensional integrity of the final assemb... View full abstract»

  • Machine learning approach for determining feasible plans of a remanufacturing system

    Resource planning for a complex remanufacturing system is in general extremely difficult in terms of, e.g., problem size and uncertainties. In many cases, simulation is the only way to select a good plan among a great number of candidates. When there exist complicated constraints, direct selection could be very inefficient since many candidates may not be feasible but cannot be excluded beforehand... View full abstract»

    The factors that generally affect the slicing error in layered manufacturing (LM) processes are first analyzed, and issues pertaining to the current methods to deal with the slicing error are discussed in this paper. A method based on a recently developed and implemented orthogonal LM system to reduce the overall slicing error is presented. In this method, the flat region is separated from the ste...

  • Relative value function approximation for the capacitated re-entrant line scheduling problem

    The problem addressed in this study is that of determining how to allocate the workstation processing and buffering capacity in a capacitated re-entrant line to the job instances competing for it, in order to maximize its long-run/steady-state throughput, while maintaining the logical correctness of the underlying material flow, i.e., deadlock-free operations. An approximation scheme for the optim... View full abstract»

    A new method for repositioning a rigid body with a flexible sheet is developed and is applied to a rehabilitation bed for turning and transferring a bedridden patient to alleviate bedsores and other ailments. The patient position and orientation are fully controlled by manipulating a flexible bed sheet under no-slip conditions. The use of a flexible sheet and the untethered nature of manipulation ...
