Evolvable Assembly Systems: Latest Developments
2008 (English)In: 8th International Conference on Evolvable Systems: From Biology to Hardware, Prag, Tjeckien, 2008Conference paper (Refereed)
Presented in 2002, and applied within the EUPASS and A3 projects, Evolvable Assembly Systems (EAS) proposes a novel way of applying assembly systems in industry. The essence of EAS resides in the ability of system components to 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. The system modules are derived from precise product process requirements, thus creating a dynamic product-production link. Its methodology supports maintenance aspects, and legacy systems may be 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, applications and conclusions drawn to date.
