Algebraic models of flexible manufacturing systems
Abstract
Various aspects of the use of mathematical methods in the development of flexible manufacturing systems are examined. Attention is given to dynamical and structural models of flexible manufacturing systems developed by using methods of algebraic and differential geometry, topology, polynomial algebra, and extreme value problem theory. The principles of model integration are discussed, and approaches are proposed for solving problems related to the selection of flexible manufacturing equipment, realtime modeling of the manufacturing process, and optimization of local automation systems. The discussion is illustrated by examples.
