Changeable and Reconfigurable Manufacturing Systems by Hoda A. ElMaraghy

By Hoda A. ElMaraghy

Change, in items and structures, has develop into a relentless in production. Changeable and Reconfigurable production Systems discusses many key techniques for achievement during this surroundings. alterations can ordinarilly be expected yet a few transcend the layout diversity. This calls for supplying cutting edge swap enablers and variation mechanisms.

Changeable and Reconfigurable production Systems provides the hot thought of changeability as an umbrella framework that encompasses many paradigms reminiscent of agility, adaptability, flexibility and reconfigurability. The booklet offers the definitions and class of key words during this new box, and emphasizes the necessary physical/hard and logical/soft switch enablers.

Over 22 chapters, the booklet provides leading edge applied sciences, the most recent considering and study effects, in addition to destiny instructions to aid brands remain aggressive. It comprises unique contributions and effects from senior overseas specialists, skilled practitioners and finished researchers within the box of producing, including commercial functions. Changeable and Reconfigurable production Systems serves as a complete reference and textbook for commercial pros, managers, engineers, experts, researchers and lecturers in production, commercial and mechanical engineering; and common readers who're to profit in regards to the new and rising production paradigms and their strength impression at the place of work and destiny jobs.

This corresponds to variations in products within a pre-defined scope of a parts family. It also allows adjusting production capacity within the limits of the existing system. Therefore, FMS offers generalized flexibility that is built-in a priory and permits changes and adaptation of processes and production volumes, within the pre-defined boundaries, without physically changing the manufacturing system itself. Reconfigurable manufacturing allows changeable functionality and scalable capacity (Koren, 2006) by physically changing the components of the system through adding, removing or modifying machine modules, machines, cells, material handling units and/or complete lines.

ElMaraghy subsequent ability to interchange and combine modules into different products to offer the desired customization. In addition, they will affect the design and efficiency of the corresponding manufacturing systems. The choice of modules can also help manufacturers protect their intellectual properties by carefully planning the modules and making decisions to produce in-house, purchase or sub-contract their production. 5) Products are a collection of sub-assemblies and modules, the variation of which leads to different instances of that product.

Recently introduced manufacturing systems paradigms, such as Flexible and Reconfigurable manufacturing, are responding to these needs in different ways. They can be viewed as enablers of change and transformation at different levels. Flexible manufacturing allows changing individual operations, processes, parts routing and production schedules. This corresponds to variations in products within a pre-defined scope of a parts family. It also allows adjusting production capacity within the limits of the existing system.
