The paper presents a comparison and application of metaheuristic population-based optimization algorithms to a flexible manufacturing automation scenario in a metacasting foundry. It presents a novel application and comparison of Bee Colony Algorithm (BCA) with variations of Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) and Ant Colony Optimization (ACO) for object(More)
The aim of this paper is to examine the synergies between lean, EMS and green systems, manufacturing management strategies as found in the literature, with a focus on the co-occurent implementation of these strategic initiatives, in order to develop a research agenda to guide a theoretically based future research to assist small-medium enterprise (SME)(More)
The paper presents an application of Bee Colony Algorithm (BCA) for template matching that is used for manufacturing automation in a metalcasting foundry. The paper presents a novel application of BCA for robot pick-and-place operation. To enable robust manipulation by a six axis industrial robot manipulator, it is important that the correct orientation of(More)
