Abstract/Description: Manufacturers need to deploy their assembly systems in a timely manner to cope with expedited product development. Design of such responsive assembly systems consists of generation of assembly/subassembly operations and their hierarchies, operation-machine assignment, selections of machine types and quantities, and the material flow among machines. Exploration of all the feasible solutions to the assembly operations and their hierarchical relationships is vital to optimization of system designs. This research developed a theoretical framework based on a recursive algorithm to automatically generate all feasible and non-redundant assembly hierarchies efficiently, thereby investigating its impact on assembly system designs. Then this research further discussed the potential applications of the recursive framework in system optimization including joint determination of optimal assembly operations, operation-machine assignment, machine types and quantities, and the material flows among machines. The work was also extended to the optimization of assembly systems for the products with complex liaison relations and product families.
