Pp. 140-161 (22)

Li-Ming Ou and Xun Xu


This work is focused on a conceptual framework that is able to provide cognitive capabilities to an assembly environment. The framework provides assembly decision-making processes that consider assembly resources and design of a product. The proposed cognitive assembly system comprises of knowledge databases, assembly sequence generation, assembly resource planning and autonomous (self-learning) control capabilities.
