Flexible Automation and Integrated Manufacturing 1999

ISBN Imprimer: 978-1-56700-133-4

The International Conference on Flexible Automation and Intelligent Manufacturing (FAIM) has a rich and time-tested tradition of excellence culminating in the FAIM 99 Conference at Tilburg University in The Netherlands. The first conference, "Factory Automation and Information Management," was hosted in March 1991 by the University of Limerick, Ireland. Authors from more than 18 countries contributed over 100 papers. The second conference, "Flexible Automation and Information Management," was hosted by Virginia Tech in Washington, DC, in June 1992. The third conference, "Flexible Automation and Integrated Manufacturing," was hosted in June, 1993 by the University of Limerick, Ireland. The fourth conference was held at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Virginia in May 1994. The fifth conference was held at the Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing and Management, University of Stuttgart, Germany, in June 1995. The sixth international conference was conducted in May 1996 at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, Georgia. The seventh FAIM conference was sponsored by the European Process Industries Competitiveness Centre (EPICC) at the University of Teesside in Middlesbrough, United Kingdom, in June 1997. Last year's conference, FAIM'98, was sponsored by Portland State University in Portland, Oregon, with generous assistance from Oregon State University and the Oregon Center for Advanced Technology Education. Next year, FAIM 2000 will be organized by the University of Maryland, College Park, Maryland on June 26-28, 2000.
This year, authors from approximately 26 countries have contributed 100 papers, and as in the case of previous FAIM conferences, each paper has been thoroughly reviewed. The papers cover the following themes:
Emerging Trends in Manufacturing
Concurrent Engineering
Enterprise Re-engineering
Computer Aided Design
Product and Process Design
Process Planning
Design for Assembly
Design of Assembly Line
Cellular Manufacturing
Automated Material Handling
Production Planning
Queueing / Simulation in Manufacturing
Scheduling and Control
Flexible Automation & Robotics
Sensors
Process Control
Costing & Economics of Automation
Electronics Manufacturing
Information Technology in Manufacturing
Maintenance and Total Quality Management
Manufacturers today must compete in dynamic markets which demand excellence in areas of cost, quality, innovativeness and time to market. They must master rapidly changing materials and process technologies. They need to achieve short product development cycles, expand product lines, and combat shrinking product life cycles in a global economy marked by rapid fluctuations and increasing competition.
Flexible Automation and Intelligent Manufacturing is based on advanced technologies, computer integrated product and process development, and related organizational methods that meet these changing conditions. FAIM 99 addresses applications of these technologies and methods to the manufacturing environment, from industrial and academic perspectives.
