Purpose – This paper aims to examine the introduction of Kanban production control, at a UK‐based electronic product‐manufacturing operation. Design/methodology/approach – The paper covers key implementation issues, including cultural factors, the reasons behind the adoption of an...
Purpose – The increasing of mechanization levels used in tasks execution in construction, as a way to increase productivity, requires its rationalization, the adoption of new assembly‐ready materials and methods, and the application of robotics capabilities. In this way, using concepts as...
Purpose – This study seeks to present a simple assembly line design and its balance for a low‐volume manufacturing company. Design/methodology/approach – The study presents experiences with the design and implementation of a simple assembly line. The implementation concerns three aspects;...
Purpose – The main features of evolvable systems include distributed control, a modularized, intelligent and open architecture, a comprehensive and multi‐dimensional methodological support that comprises the reference architecture. Furthermore, integration of legacy subsystems and modules has...
Purpose – This paper aims to describe a new optical geometrical inspection technique and its applications by Volvo Cars. Design/methodology/approach – The paper discusses the limitations of contact probe‐based coordinate measurement machines scanning, describes a new, laser‐based 3D...
Purpose – This paper aims to describe the fundamental concept of Fanuc's 720 h unattended continuous manufacturing system. It pays special attention to the material‐handling system, direct input‐output system (DIO system) created by Tetsuro Mori, Seibu Electric, Japan, that is the integral...
Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to explain the development and testing of a condition‐monitoring sub‐module of an integrated plant maintenance management application based on artificial intelligence (AI) techniques, mainly knowledge‐based systems, having several modules,...
Purpose – The aim of this paper is the development of a modular robotic system for generic industrial applications, including assembly. Design/methodology/approach – A library of robotic modules has been designed; they are divided into two categories: link modules, not actuated, and joint...
Purpose – This paper's objective is to explain the concept of proper kinematic constraint to guide requirements‐driven design of mechanical assemblies and to connects proper constraint to the datum flow chain (DFC) and key characteristics (KCs). Design/methodology/approach – The paper...
