Planning in assembly systems – A common modeling for products and resources
Paper i proceeding, 2012
This paper presents a method for modeling robot and
human resources in the context of assembly systems planning.
In assembly systems, several redundant resources
can be used to increase system flexibility. However, the
“quality” of a sequence planning strongly depends on the
“quality” of the system modeling. Furthermore, occurrence
of unexpected events or variations in availability of
resources may have significant impact on the actual planning.
Instead of using simplistic models such as available
or unavailable resources, the method presented in this paper
proposes a more detailed modeling of resource abilities.
Products and resources are considered on the same
levels and matched together on a final step. The aim of
this modeling is to permit analyses and to increase system
