Reconfigurability of machine tools is one of the critical factors to realize the responsive manufacturing systems to satisfy the mass-customization production. This paper presents the methods to model and simulate the machine tools on Internet in response to change in the machining requirements. Specifically, a set of module combination rules and a modeling(More)
In this paper we suggest an evolutionary computational approach by applying a combination of a genetic algorithm and a tabu search to obtain a good solution for relatively large unidirectional automated guided vehicle flowpath design problems. Unidirectional flowpaths are used to lessen the traffic control loads for large fleets of vehicles and to increase(More)
