  • Pierre De Lit

Abstract

Product and assembly system design may be two interrelated processes, as the authors mentioned in section 1.3.2. In this chapter the authors describe the proposed methodology, having product family (PF) and assembly line design interacted. A short introduction to concurrent engineering (CE) is given in section 3.1. Before describing the proposed methodology for the concurrent design of pfs and their assembly system in section 3.3, some reflections on concurrent design and on optimisation problems are presented in section 3.2. Section 3.4 is devoted to conclusions.
