This paper proposes a 3D graphics simulation environment for the analysis and design evaluation of a layout reconfiguration process of the reconfigurable manufacturing system (RMS). Manufacturing cells (MCs) in the RMS are positioned to minimize a total distance of transport paths for a given manufacturing layout. After the end of current manufacturing process, the MCs start to move to each position in the optimal layout of next manufacturing process. The positioning and timing of the MCs in… CONTINUE READING
