2010 (English)In: Assembly Automation, ISSN 0144-5154, E-ISSN 1758-4078, Vol. 30, no 1, 7-31 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

Purpose - This roadmap is primarily concerned with the adaptive assembly technology situation in Europe, a topic of particular interest as assembly is often the final process within manufacturing operations. Being the final set of operations on the product, and being traditionally labour-intensive, assembly has been considerably affected by globalisation. Therefore, unlike most technology roadmaps, this report will not focus solely on particular technologies, but will strive to form a broader perspective on the conditions that may come to influence the opportunities, including political aspects and scientific paradigms. The purpose of this paper is to convey a complete view of the global mechanisms that may come to affect technological breakthroughs, and also present strategies that may better prepare for such a forecast. Design/methodology/approach - The paper describes a technological roadmap. Findings - This paper provides a complete overview of all aspects that may come to affect assembly in Europe within the next 20 years. Originality/value - The paper gives an original Evolvable Ultra Precision Assembly Systems FP6 project result which will be of general interest for strategic R&D.
