Assembly with Robots (?)—Design Tools or Technology Question 800381

Assembly research comprises the definitive description of how parts interact during assembly (called Part Mating Science), the collection of part mating processes into systems that assemble products, and the integration of this process into the factory as a whole. Products can be assembled by four techniques: manual labor, special purpose machines, programmable systems, or hybrids of the above. Each system includes material handling, parts feeding, assembly, inspection, and may include manufacturing. Issues of design include technology, part mating, product system design tools, and economics.
