Smart Algorithm for Automated Engineering Tasks

The industrial future will be characterized with digital solutions and electrical tools for an increased flexibility in operations. To handle a higher product variety and to maintain a high flexibility new assembly information systems allow a larger amount of manufacturing preparatory tasks to be fully automated.
Description of the thesis work
The scope of this thesis is to develop software solutions to fetch assembly master instructions based on predetermined motion time system (PMTS) data generated from simulation software and order information provided by planning systems. The PMTS data indicate how the operator will interact and handle the objects in the assembly procedure. The project will be conducted in parallel with another master thesis project in the area. Collaboration between both the groups is necessary. The assignment of this thesis includes:
  • Investigate relevant techniques to categorize and analyze PMTS data (such AI, machine learning etc.)
  • Develop and implement an algorithm/application to compose assembly work instructions based on PMTS data, assembly master instructions and order information
  • Utilization of operator information model from the other project group
  • Evaluation of filtering of assembly work instructions (collaboration)
