Entropic measure to determine reconfiguration using integrated system design

1995 IEEE International Conference on Systems, Man and Cybernetics. Intelligent Systems for the 21st Century, 1995

A manufacturing system is usually designed to deal with a certain set of products and demands. Once these conditions change a system might have to change in a number of ways, such as adding or decreasing capacity and adding new processes. Changes may also be required in terms of system reconfiguration by rearrangement of machines, tools and material handling equipment. ...

  • Entropic measure to determine reconfiguration using integrated system design

    A manufacturing system is usually designed to deal with a certain set of products and demands. Once these conditions change a system might have to change in a number of ways, such as adding or decreasing capacity and adding new processes. Changes may also be required in terms of system reconfiguration by rearrangement of machines, tools and material handling equipment. These changes that need to be made are not so transparent owing to the uncertainty in product demands and design changes and the complexity of the "information" present within a manufacturing system. This paper presents an entropic measure to indicate the changes that ought to be made at the system, cell or machine level of a manufacturing system. The entropic measure developed takes into consideration the probability of product demands and serves as a global indicator for possible reconfiguration. We also discuss briefly an integrated frame work for the design of manufacturing systems based on the genetic recombination technique which provides an integrated environment to explore the changes of product designs and demands on the entire manufacturing system.

  • Computer aided stability and safety analysis of forklifts

    Forklift is a common type of material handling equipment. As a result of carrying various loads at varying speed and in different types of terrains, a forklift is susceptible to tipping over. This paper presents the development of a software to study the effects of loading, wheelbase size, vehicle speed, top-heaviness and inclination on the stability of forklifts. The goal is to bring more insight into the stability of forklifts, and to help improving their future design. The approach taken is to employ the concept of energy stability as a measure to indicate the potential overturning of the vehicle over each edge. A graphic interface is also developed to interactively demonstrate the results. The software package is applied to the stability analysis of a Caterpillar DP-90 forklift. The software is capable of indicating the bounds of many variables/parameters within which the forklift operates safely.

  • Fleet performance under selective maintenance

    Many organizations rely on the effective use of fleets of repairable equipment that must perform sets of sequential missions. Such fleets include production equipment used in manufacturing systems, material handling equipment used in warehousing, and transportation vehicles used in distribution. Unfortunately, most organizations do not possess sufficient maintenance resources to keep the fleet in top condition at all times. Therefore, maintenance managers must make decisions regarding the allocation of the available maintenance resources. This task falls within the domain of selective maintenance, the process of identifying the subset of maintenance actions to perform from a set of desirable maintenance actions. In this paper, we consider a selective maintenance model that is used to maximize fleet reliability, the probability that all systems within a fleet successfully complete their next mission. We evaluate fleet reliability over sequential sets of missions where system maintenance is performed only during the breaks between mission's sets. A combined simulation-optimization model is used to simulate the performance of the fleet over each set of missions and identify the optimal maintenance activities to perform during each break. We use this model to analyze the behavior of the stochastic process corresponding to the number of successful missions in each set.

  • A client-server based computer integrated manufacturing system for an epoxy molding compound plant

    This paper presents a client server based computer integrated manufacturing system (CIMS) implemented in the epoxy molding compound plant of Toshiba Chemical Singapore Pte Ltd. The system consists of one system server and 27 client workstations linked by Ethernet. It is also connected to different automatic production equipment, such as automated material handling equipment, weighing machines, charging machines, data acquisition devices and instruments. The main functions of the system include production planning, material requirement planning, work order generation, process control, quality control, automated warehouse management and control, shipping planning and management and material cost accounting. Besides focusing on manufacturing and logistic functions, the system also interfaces with purchase, sales and accounting systems in which packaged software are used. The practical use of the CIMS has shown that the application of CIM technology is a vital factor for the company to provide advanced products with constant high quality, reduced production cost and short delivery time.

  • Queue Theory Based Algorithm for Material Lean Scheduling in Heavy Weight Parts Workshop

    The extensive management manner and the severe wastes have become the barriers to the development of the heavy weight parts machining workshop. The article advances a new heavy weight parts machining workshop material lean scheduling method under the guidance of lean production principles and queue theories. The new scheduling method considers the impact factors such as respective machining time of all the work areas, the service time and the velocity of the material-handling equipment synthetically. Select the total latency time of all the work areas, the answer times and the total moving distance of the material-handling equipment in a whole workday as target values of the material lean scheduling system. A simulation study is performed to compare the new heavy weight parts machining workshop lean scheduling scheme with the traditional scheduling methods. The ultimate simulation results show that the designed new scheduling method is superior to the traditional ones evidently.

  • A model of CIM

    What is CIM? What is the role of CIM in manufacturing? What is the value of CIM and how can it be measured? How much CIM do we need? How can the impact of CIM be communicated to manufacturing management? SEMATECH and its member companies have been wrestling with these questions for several years. Several programs have addressed these questions and, as a result, we are in a much better position to provide the answers. Leveraging the results of SEMATECH programs and other related works, this paper introduces a new "model based" approach to the challenge of comprehensively explaining CIM and its impact on manufacturing. This CIM model is being developed at SEMATECH and is entitled the CIM Evolution Model (CEM).

  • An example for scheduling a chemical processing tank line

    This paper presents an algorithm for scheduling a chemical processing line with one piece of material handling equipment to transfer jobs through the line. An easy to use scheduler is developed which can be used to schedule a line or analyze the line design parameters during the design stage to achieve the maximum throughput while not allowing defects.

  • Automated Formal Verification of Routing in Material Handling Systems

    The design of correctly implemented controls in material handling systems (MHS) is time consuming and cumbersome. The developer has to deal with an ever increasing complexity and heterogeneity of MHS on the one hand, but also with short development cycles and high demands to MHS on the other hand. For baggage handling systems (BHS) at airports, the error-free implementation of routing strategies is especially of importance, as these strategies are critical to safety. This paper proposes a compositional approach to the formal verification of routing in MHS. The approach is based on the theory of assume- guarantee reasoning, where proofs of the overall system are derived from proofs of subsystems. Moreover, the approach has been implemented in a tool that automatically carries out the verification. A real-world example is discussed in this paper, showing the benefits and scalability of the presented approach.
