Evolvable assembly systems: Developments and advances
2007 (English)In: 2007 IEEE International Symposium on Assembly and Manufacturing, 2007, 282-287 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
The aim of this paper is to introduce the basic priciples. and concepts of Evolvable Assembly Systems, EAS, represents a novel way of designing and implementing assembly systems in industry, and was first presented in 2002. The essence of EAS resides in the ability of system components to not only adapt to the changing conditions of operation, but also to assist in the evolution of these components in time such that processes may become more robust, maintenance aspects are supported, and legacy systems integrated. EAS also enforces the idea that ubiquitous computing and distributed control are best suited for such endeavors. This article will present the latest developments and advances made to date.
