Axiomatic Deisgn of Manufacturing Systems
Author(s)Cochran, David; Reynal, Vicente
This paper introduces the use of axiomatic design in the design of manufacturing systems. The two primary functional requirements of any manufacturing system are developed. These functional requirements are then used to analyze the design of four manufacturing systems in terms of system performance.The purpose of this work is to provide a new foundation for describing, determining, and rationalizing the design of any new manufacturing system.
