Planning that incorporates critical resource and part constraints due to manufacturing processing as well as material handling tolerance and kinematic requirements has not been reported in the existing literature. By integrating these manufacturing resource and part constraints using object-oriented design, our operations planner creates immediately executable manufacturing plans for flexible manufacturing systems. This planner automatically generates plans for coordinated material processing… Expand
