Determination of a feasible assembly sequence with optimum assembly cost is significant for manufacturing industries to minimize the overall cost of manufacturing process. Since feasibility predicate is an essential qualifying criterion in the area of assembly sequence generation, an efficient method is developed to test the feasibility predicate of robotic assembly for a defined sequence. The correctness of the methodology is proven by integrating the method with the 3D solid CAD models. The automation of method avoids the human intervention and does not require any skill from the engineer.
