Programming of industrial robots is normally carried out via so-called "Teach" or "Offline" programming methodologies. Both methodologies have associated weaknesses like a high time consumption for programming on sculptured surfaces (especially "Teach"), and both methodologies cannot, at the same time, carry information of the real work piece and the ideal(More)
The so-called smart factory is a novel paradigm that is rapidly gaining ground in scenarios for factories of the future. Many manufacturing companies try to raise the level of smartness by considering a number of aspects related to the smart factory. However, there is a lack of field-oriented systematic research to help them fit the interest of industry for(More)
Protecting and sustaining nature environment are two of the most important conditions regarding economic and social development. While the resources are extracted from and wastes are disposed to the same mother Earth, managing wastes of a value chain has been segmented and treated isolated. This segmentation leads to the partial optimization in waste(More)
Increasing pressures on freshwater supplies, continuity of supply uncertainties, and costs linked to legislative compliance, such as for wastewater treatment, are driving water use reduction up the agenda of manufacturing businesses. A survey is presented of current analysis methods and tools generally available to industry to analyze environmental impact(More)
During the 21st century rapid progress in computer communication and technologies influences robot systems: becoming larger and more complicated than ever previously. To manage the rapidly growing sensor data the single robot systems transformed to networked systems, facing new challenges. The demand of low-cost mass production of robots (industrial or(More)
Nowadays, Single Minute Exchange of Dies (SMED) has achieved great industrial popularity. However, it remains unclear to what extent and how SMED implementation at its different stages benefits industries. To address this gap, this research proposes a structural equation model to quantitatively measure SMED effects. The model has six hypotheses that link(More)
CogInfoCom is a novel interdisciplinary field of research – seen as a result of the merging of cognitive aspects and infocommunicative technologies in recent years. Research on CogInfoCom has enabled researchers and developers in engineering to explore the degree of co-existence of human and artificial intelligence in different fields. Such(More)
