    • A modular flexible scalable and reconfigurable system for manufacturing of microsystems based on additive manufacturing and e-printing 

      Woegerer, Christian; Plasch, Matthias; Heidl, Wolfgang; Dickerhof, Markus; Kimmig, Daniel; Scholz, Steffen; Adamietz, Raphael; Iseringhausen, Tobias (Proceedings of the 24th International Conference on Flexible Automation & Intelligent Manufacturing, 2014)
      Generative manufacturing technologies are gaining more and more of importance as key enabling technologies in future manufacturing, especially when a flexible scalable manufacturing of small medium series of customized ...
    • A novel engineering method for the power flow assessment in servo-actuated automated machinery 

      Oliva, Enrico; Berselli, Giovanni; Pelliccian, Marcello (Proceedings of the 24th International Conference on Flexible Automation & Intelligent Manufacturing, 2014)
      Multipurpose and programmable servo-actuated mechanisms may be envisaged as the key technology for increasing flexibility and re-configurability of modern automated machinery. Unfortunately, based on the current ...
    • Advantages of using hybrid manufacturing platforms to realize decentralized manufacture 

      Kendrick, Blake A.; Dhokia, Vimal; Newman, Stephen T. (Proceedings of the 24th International Conference on Flexible Automation & Intelligent Manufacturing, 2014)
      Manufacturing has traditionally been the domain of centralised factories, set-up and optimised to make a sole product or product-range. Whilst the in-house efficacy of such systems has been greatly improved due to lean ...
    • Classification of reconfiguration resources and lead time for reconfigurable manufacturing systems 

      Puik, Erik; Telgen, Daniel; Moergestel, Leo van; Ceglarek, Darek (Proceedings of the 24th International Conference on Flexible Automation & Intelligent Manufacturing, 2014)
      Manufacturing technology can improve the turnover of a company if it enables fast market introduction for volume production. Reconfigurable equipment is developed to meet the growing demand for more agile production. Modular ...
    • Factors for a decentralized production and sequence planning from the perspective of products and resources 

      Taphorn, Christoph (Proceedings of the 24th International Conference on Flexible Automation & Intelligent Manufacturing, 2014)
      The trend towards more and more individual products leads to new challenges for production planning and scheduling. Rising numbers of variants, high fluctuations of demand and smaller production volumes require flexibility ...
    • Hierarchical management of a heterarchical manufacturing grid 

      Telgen, Daniël; Moergestel, Leo van; Puik, Erik; Streng, Alexander; Scheefhals, Roy; Bakker, Tommas; Hustinx, Alexander; Brink, Laurens van den; Meyer, John-Jules Ch. (Proceedings of the 24th International Conference on Flexible Automation & Intelligent Manufacturing, 2014)
      Automated manufacturing systems are traditionally hierarchically controlled by a centralized control system. This makes the system deterministic and therefore easier to be optimized for efficient manufacturing of a large ...
