Integration of Product and Process Development Using Rapid Prototyping and Workcell Simulation Technologies

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The crucial roles of rapid prototyping (RP) and workcell simulation technologies in achieving the integration of process and product development are analyzed. The methodology of integration is established and a procedure to carry out this integration is developed. The complexity of the integration of product and process development can be significantly reduced, with the implementation of RP and workcell simulation technologies. RP and workcell simulation technologies must become the norm of the basic design phase, so the hidden cost of part and process reworks can be eliminated, for manufacturers.
