Complex process. Automation of assembly via robots presupposes careful planning.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Although specific assembly techniques for a given layout cannot be generalized, coordinated construction and planning or common project groups enable optimum flexible assembly systems to be derived for industrial processes. Hierarchic structuring of the complex systems enables individual automation techniques to be combined for the entire process. A cell for automatic assembly of sealing foils on doors, and a grab for assembly of insulating mats in the bodywork of cars, are typical of such rationalization aids. There is also a need for guidelines for the design and construction of assembly tools in clean rooms. Such fundamental process investigations are the prerequisite for effective planning work.
