Purpose – The purpose of the paper is to present a fundamental mindset that an experienced Japanese Toyota Production System (TPS) consultant has when he drives a series of improvement activities during a lean transformation. Design/methodology/approach – The main author of this paper...
Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to research and design a feasible automatic identification and data capture (AIDC) system for a manufacturing small to medium enterprise (SME) that is able to facilitate the flow of accurate and real‐time data throughout the manufacturing process....
Purpose – Over the last several months, the cries to become lean and low cost have echoed all the way from the halls of government to the smallest company's back room. In times of severe economic challenge, the natural reaction is to make decisions that can make an organization become as lean...
Purpose – For several years, the domestic markets of manufacturing organizations have started to reach maturity and companies have sought to expand their international operations in order to grow. This has meant that there has been an increasing emphasis on the debate on whether companies...
Purpose – This paper aims to investigate automatic assembly planning for robot and manual assembly. Design/methodology/approach – The octree decomposition technique is applied to approximate a computer‐aided design model with an octree representation which is then used to generate robot and...
Purpose – The information and knowledge about a product and its assembly are necessary to generate all feasible assembly sequences of that product. Assemblies contain a very large amount of information and complex relationships. Identifying assembled parts as well as their contact surfaces is...
Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to address a problem that is commonly faced by manufacturing companies in the plastics industry, where large and different batches of freshly produced units need to be unloaded from the injection‐moulding machines and relocated, using automation....
Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to propose an effective and efficient solution method for the component allocation problem (CAP) in printed circuit board (PCB) assembly, in order to achieve high‐throughput rates of the PCB assembly lines. Design/methodology/approach – The...
Purpose – Recognition of machining features is an essential step in the development of efficient‐automated process plans from solid modeling data. This process represents the effective interpretation of the geometric data in a computer‐aided design (CAD) model to create semantically rich...
Purpose – Design, balancing, and sequencing are the key issues associated with assembly lines (ALs). The purpose of this paper is to identify AL design issues and to develop an integrated methodology for mixed‐model assembly line balancing (MMALB) and sequencing. Primarily, mixed‐model...
