    • A framework to support the lifecycle of virtual manufacturing enterprises 

      Azevedo, Ame�rico; Ferreira, Filipe; Faria, Jose� (Proceedings of the 24th International Conference on Flexible Automation & Intelligent Manufacturing, 2014)
      This paper proposes a framework to support the full virtual manufacturing enterprise lifecycle from the creation to the operation and dissolution. The paper will show how the framework supports the activities involved in ...
    • Adaptive robotic control in cloud environments 

      Adamson, Goran; Wang, Lihui, 1959-; Holm, Magnus; Moore, Philip (Proceedings of the 24th International Conference on Flexible Automation & Intelligent Manufacturing, 2014)
      Many of the applications in the 3D printing market have been for manufacturing prototypes in an inexpensive and relatively fast manner. Today, 3D printers make this possible by no longer having to use third party manufacturers. ...
    • Advanced 3D robot simulation for flexible interactive manual robot guidance—an eRobotics approach 

      Kaigom, Eric Guiffo; Rossmann, Jürgen (Proceedings of the 24th International Conference on Flexible Automation & Intelligent Manufacturing, 2014)
      Manual robot guidance is an intuitive approach to teach robots with human’s skills in the loop. It is particularly useful to manufacturers because of the high flexibility and low programming efforts. However, manual robot ...
    • Auto-recovery from machining stoppages based on STEP-NC 

      Sang, Zhiqian; Xu, Xun, 1959- (Proceedings of the 24th International Conference on Flexible Automation & Intelligent Manufacturing, 2014)
      Machining stoppage occurs from time to time due to various reasons. For the current CNC system using G/M code as part program, to recovery from the stoppage, the operator needs to scroll the part program to find the specific ...
    • Hardware in the loop simulation-based training for automated manufacturing systems operators 

      Vergnano, Alberto; Pellicciari, Marcello; Berselli, Giovanni (Proceedings of the 24th International Conference on Flexible Automation & Intelligent Manufacturing, 2014)
      Simulation-Based-Training (SBT) allows to train the operators of complex machinery within a safe virtual environment by means of effective lifelike learning experiences. SBT has been efficiently used in medical, aerospace ...
    • 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 ...
    • Making product customization more feasible for flexible manufacturing systems 

      Kim, Hoejin; Culler, David E. (Proceedings of the 24th International Conference on Flexible Automation & Intelligent Manufacturing, 2014)
      A big challenge for companies is to make the steps between product design and process configuration more agile and adaptable. Some potential areas of performance improvement include|| connecting product design to process ...
    • Methodological implementation of sensor networks for smart manufacturing and smart factories 

      Hurzig, André; Müller, Egon, 1952- (Proceedings of the 24th International Conference on Flexible Automation & Intelligent Manufacturing, 2014)
      With the transformation to &quot
    • Technologies guiding the future of robotics in manufacturing 

      Flannigan, William C; Evans, Paul T.; Edwards, Shaun M.; Hvass, Paul B. (Proceedings of the 24th International Conference on Flexible Automation & Intelligent Manufacturing, 2014)
      Industrial robots, both stationary and mobile, have been used in manufacturing applications for decades and are most often employed based on requirements for dedicated and repetitive manufacturing operations. Industrial ...
