Design Synthesis Framework for Dimensional Management in Multistage Assembly System


This paper proposes a design synthesis framework for dimensional management in multistage assembly systems which integrate the critical design tasks: (1) Tolerance Optimization; (2) Multi-Fixture Layout Design; and, (3) Part-to-part Joint Design. The proposed framework is based on the development of: (1) a new hybrid Design Structure Matrix which integrates… (More)
