Flexible Automated Manufacturing in the Machining Shop 830877
It has now become an important subject to Improve the flexibility of a production system, even in the automotive industry which is the leading representative of the mass production systems.
It is the same with the machining and assembling of engines, transmissions, etc., which have a longer product life and which are mass produced using many special purpose machines with high production capacities.
In this report, the term “flexibility” is considered first. We expect a characteristic flexibility in a production systems according to the products.
Next, we would like to present a few examples of improved flexibility.
