Due to rapid changes in recent market demands, shortened production ramp-up/launch and model changeover of new products with simultaneous manufacturing of family of products on a single production line is becoming inevitable. This requires systematic methods for rapid design and analysis of reconfigurable fixture workspace synthesis and visibility. This paper presents an integrated approach for rapid reconfigurable fixture deployment which is based on (1) the procrustes analysis integrated with… CONTINUE READING
