Collect-and-place machines represent one of the most popular types of placement machines in automated printed circuit board (PCB) assembly. For scheduling the operations of this type of machinery, a three-stage heuristic solution approach is presented. In the first stage, the feeders (component types) are assigned to locations in the magazine of the placement machine. In the second stage, based on the assignment of component feeders to magazine positions, the component placement sequence is… CONTINUE READING
