Abstract:
Automotive manufacturing constantly demands an enhancement of lean manufacturing ability. A proposed Flexible Control Structure (FCS) shows its capability to accommodate that anxiety. The FCS is a multi-control mechanism. With the FCS, the control scheme can be reconfigured logically, corresponding to different system input capacities. A Robot, Computer and Vision (RCV) Inspection System was simulated as an integrated manufacturing testing environment. FCS and other control structures were implemented individually within the testing environment. As the result of data analysis, Flexible Control Structure was found to be most efficient in the case of mixed capacity scenario.
