The simulation approach for designing robotic workcells

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Robotic workcells are important elements in automated manufacturing systems. Rapid design and deployment of such workcells require applications of new concepts, tools, and methods designed to streamline program development and optimize workcell performance. This paper describes a simulation approach to designing robotic workcells, including the functions and methodology of the IGRIP software that is used to model, simulate, and program robotic workcells. This state-of-the-art technology helps designers produce credible workcell layout designs and robotic control programs in a three-dimensional, interactive, virtual design environment, significantly reducing design time and production downtime.
