Abstract

A new super-shape approach for the physical layout of robotic assembly cells uses a robot, kits, feeders, jigs and fixtures, gripper rack, etc. , to assemble either a single product or a range of different products. This approach can solve layout position and orientation sub-problems more expediently than conventional formulations. It has the advantages that input data are easily available, no a priori user approximations to the optimal layout are necessary, and qualitative factors can be incorporated. Two practical examples of its use are presented for the layout of a wiring harness assembly and an office equipment assembly cell.
