Adhesive hydrogels are attractive biomaterials for various applications, such as electronic skin, wound dressing, and wearable devices. However, fabricating a hydrogel with both adequate adhesiveness and excellent mechanical properties remains a challenge. Inspired by the adhesion mechanism of mussels, we used a two-step process to develop an adhesive and(More)
In cellular manufacturing, it is essential to focus on human issues such as worker assignment strategies, skill identification, teamwork and communication. In order to analyze the impact of collaborative work in cellular manufacturing, agent model of workers was developed and integrated into the production simulation model. Then, comparative simulation(More)
Tantalum has been widely used in orthopedic and dental implants. However, the major barrier to the extended use of such medical devices is the possibility of bacterial adhesion to the implant surface which will cause implant-associated infections. To solve this problem, bulk Ta-5Cu alloy has been fabricated by a combination of mechanical alloying and spark(More)
Efficient order selection strategy design is crucial for the successful execution of order tasks in supply chain, especially when supply chain members faced with multiple types of order at the same time, which will directly affect the customer satisfaction level. Aiming at order selection strategy design and evaluation, an integrated simulation model was(More)
This paper devoted to propose a human-machine integrated simulation method to evaluate the effect of corrective maintenance (CM) strategies on manufacturing cells considering the worker's autonomous and collaborative behaviors. First, a human-machine integrated model is developed to integrate the worker behaviors in the CM process by using agent technology.(More)
