Abstract

Decisions on manufacturing system design determine the current and future profitability of manufacturing companies. Reconfigurable Cellular Manufacturing Systems make possible to evolve the design of the system in parallel to an uncertain market demand. This paper proposes a software tool based on Computational Design Synthesis to support the design process with the objective to enable and speed up set-based system design, while complementing current design support approaches. In addition, the industrial context of use and an the plans for evaluating the support are outlined.

Keywords: design support system, computational design synthesis (CDS), lean product development, knowledge based engineering, manufacturing
