From Task Allocation Towards Resource Allocation when Optimising Assembly Systems
Journal article, 2012

The article discusses the question; is it possible to reach route flexibility and system proactivity through resource allocation and task optimisation. In order to answer this, differences between three types of optimisation regarding task and resource allocation are discussed: Global Task and Resource optimisation, Task optimisation and local resource allocation, but with resource alternatives, Task optimisation and local resource allocation (optimisation), with prioritised resources, shown as a possible solution in this paper in order to increase the route flexibility and proactivity in the system planning. An example of the last approach will be shown using a logic language (SOP) with help of software tool called Sequence Planner (SP).
