Abstract:

A major thrust of our consulting and research work in concurrent design of products and processes has been to create a direct link between product specifications and the required methods for assembly. Using the totally- assembled geometry and component mate data as the basis, we can now establish an exploded view, the assembly Sequence, the assembly process Plan, and the assembly system taskresource Matrix which is required input for assembly system design software. This process has been captured in the S.P.M. software, currently implemented on the IBM PC or compatibles. All phases of the program allow user modifications e.g. alter view order, change sequence, adddelete process steps, alter timesafety factors, specify programmable resource types. The process is usable for the range of initial concept design to actual production requirements.
