This paper describes the necessary steps involved in implementing automatic assembly. It summarizes the various types of system and goes on to discuss the factors contributing to output efficiency of such a system. Finally, it puts forward formulae for predicting the performance of an automatic assembly machine of the rotary table indexing type.
