The work in this paper uses neural networks to develop a relationship model between assembly times and complexity metrics applied to defined mate connections within SolidWorks assembly models. This model is then used to develop a Design for Assembly (DFA) automation tool that can predict a product’s assembly time using defined mate connections within SolidWorks assembly models. The development of this new method consists of: creating a SolidWorks (SW) Add-in to automatically extract the mate… CONTINUE READING
