The process of choosing a suitable robot for an assembly application is time consuming and difficult. If every potential buyer or user has to go through the same time consuming process of collecting specifications and characteristics on numerous industrial robot models suitable for assembly, having to analyze them and make decisions, this is a waste of a large amount of resources to the industry as a whole. To eliminate the above problems a computer database was established to maintain the specification and characteristics information of the assembly robots available on the market. An interactive computer program was developed to carry out the process of search and elimination to help users to select a suitable robot. Incorporated within the selection program, the computer graphics design is used to build and optimize a layout of an assembly station.
