Abstract:

Car makers are working hard today to shorten development and production lead times through the use of flexibile manufacturing systems(FMSs)to meet diversified and individualized customer requirements. To achieve this goal, Nissan has been developing many kinds of new technologies and systems such as: (1) the intelligent body assembly system for body assembly processes; (2) a press die stamping simulation method and unified database for press die manufacturing; (3) a robot and facility teaching system using CAD data; (4) an automated assembly line for trim and chassis assembly operations. These new FMS methods have been implemented in many manufacturing areas, including the stamping shop, body assembly shop, painting shop and trim and chassis shop.

This paper focuses mainly on the intelligent body assembly system as a typical example of the new production systems and technologies being developed at Nissan.
