  1. 1. Automated Cost Estimation of Product Variants : A Tool for Enhanced Producibility

    Author : Fredrik Elgh; Högskolan i Jönköping; []
    Keywords : Cost Estimation; Design for Producibility; Design Automation; Variant Design; Process Planning; Producibility Evaluation; System Development; Information Modelling;

    Abstract : The estimation of product cost is a central activity in the design process. Most companies act in an environment of high competition where the market sets the product price. This, in combination with a focus on satisfying the shareholders’ demand for return on investment, results in a focus on cost as a constraint. READ MORE

  2. 2. On restart of automated manufacturing systems

    Author : Patrik Bergagård; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Supervisory control theory; Error recovery; Manufacturing systems; Restart; Extended finite automata; Discrete event systems;

    Abstract : Highly automated manufacturing systems have gained industrial popularity for their ability to combine high product volumes with high product quality. The high cost of investment in combination with many linked manufacturing systems in a factory, requires that the production runs smoothly with high utilization of the resources and that stoppages are avoided.

  3. 3. Automated layup and forming of prepreg laminates

    Author : Andreas Björnsson; Kerstin Johansen; Mats Björkman; Marie Jonsson; Lars Pejryd; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : Composite materials like carbon fiber-reinforced polymers (CFRPs) present highly appealing material properties, as they can combine high strength with low weight. In aerospace applications, these properties help to realize lightweight designs that can reduce fuel consumption. READ MORE

  4. 4. Slab Frame Bridges : Structural Optimization Considering Investment Cost and Environmental Impacts

    Author : Majid Solat Yavari; Costin Pacoste-Calmanovici; Raid Karoumi; Mario Plos; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Slab frame bridge; Structural design; Cost optimization; Optimization of environmental impact; Life cycle assessment; Genetic algorithm; Pattern search method; Civil and Architectural Engineering; Byggvetenskap;

    Abstract : This research encompasses the automated design and structural optimization of reinforced concrete slab frame bridges, considering investment costs and environmental impacts. The most important feature of this work is that it focusses on realistic and complete models of slab frame bridges rather than on optimization of only individual members or sections of a bridge.

  5. 5. Optimal design solutions of concrete bridges considering environmental impact and investment cost

    Author : Elisa Khouri Chalouhi; Raid Karoumi; Mario Plos; KTH; []
    Keywords : Structural optimization; Automated design; Beam bridges; Environmental impact; Investment cost; Civil and Architectural Engineering; Byggvetenskap;

    Abstract : The most used design approach for civil engineering structures is a trial and error procedure; the designer chooses an initial configuration, tests it and changes it until all safety requirements are met with good material utilization. Such a procedure is time consuming and eventually leads to a feasible solution, while several better ones could be found. READ MORE
