The Mediating Role of Overall Equipment Effectiveness on the Relationship between Fit Manufacturing and Business Performance

Advanced manufacturing technology systems have replaced traditional manufacturing systems as manufacturing industry have many technological developments in recent years. Now, the primarily concern is

Definition of social sustainability criteria for the simulation of OHS in manufacturing entities

The paper presents the prototype of a plugin, as part of a software suite (MILAN), aimed to provide technical analysts with the means to simulate various sustainability criteria in manufacturing companies.

Invention principles and contradiction matrix for semiconductor manufacturing industry: chemical mechanical polishing

The results show that a newly established preliminary CM based on merely 120 patents from 1999 to 2008 can interpret 80% of the inventive principles in a set of new patents, a significant improvement over the original Altshuller’s original CM which can only interpret 40% with 40,000 patents studied.

Technical concept of a software component for social sustainability in a software for sustainability simulation of manufacturing companies

This paper presents the technical concept and prototype implementation of a component developed for the modeling of social sustainability criteria, as well as the description of a software suite for

Learning and reasoning techniques for automatic feature recognition for CAD models

Learning and Reasoning Techniques for Automatic Feature Recognition from CAD Models

The method provides a formal reasoning mechanism that combines the advantages of inductive and deductive techniques for feature recognition from Boundary Representation (B-Rep) part models and facilitates the deployment of such systems in different application domains.

Rapid manufacturing of patterns for investment casting: improvement of quality and success rate

Purpose – The main objective of this paper is to analyse all stages of the CastForm™ polystyrene (CF) pattern fabrication process, identify the reasons leading to inferior quality, and outline

Knowledge acquisition techniques for feature recognition in CAD models

A method to generate automatically feature recognition rules that are formed by applying an inductive learning algorithm on training data consisting of feature examples is proposed and a technique for defining automatically feature hints from such rule sets is described.

New Technology for setting up The Working Coordinate system in micromilling

A major issue in micro milling is the setting up of the origins of the Machine Working Coordinate Systems (MWCS). The existing methods for carrying out this operation have an unacceptably high error
