Abstract

A survey of previous work in the field of products and their assembly system design is presented and discussed in section 2.1. Section 2.2 gives a review of recent work on product family (PF) cxmodels, together with an illustrative example. As there are numbers of definitions of a PF, the state of the art on PF representations reports various definitions of a PF and of a product variant (PV). Previous studies on design for assembly (DFA) is reported in section 2.3. An extensive literature overview on assembly plan (AP) representations is presented in section 2.4. A literature survey on AP is proposed in section 2.5. A state of the art on line design and material handling equipment (MHE) selection is proposed in section 2.6.
