Report Number: 7961
Topic: Process Improvement
Published: 11/20/2013
Authors: Alexander Brodsky, Guodong Shao, Frank H Riddick
Abstract: This paper introduces NIST‰s Sustainable Process Analytics Formalism (SPAF) to facilitate the use of simulation and optimization technologies for decision support in sustainable manufacturing. SPAF allows formal modeling of modular, extensible, and r ...

24. Performance Evaluation of Robotic Knowledge Representation (PERK)
Topic: Process Improvement
Published: 3/22/2012
Authors: Craig I Schlenoff, Sebti Foufou, Stephen B. Balakirsky
Abstract: In this paper, we explore some ways in which symbolic knowledge representations have been evaluated in the past and provide some thoughts on what should be considered when applying and evaluating these types of knowledge representations for real-time ...

25. Performance Measurement of Mobile Manipulators
Topic: Process Improvement
Published: 4/24/2015
Authors: Roger V Bostelman, Tsai Hong Hong, Jeremy A Marvel
Abstract: This paper describes a concept for measuring the reproducible performance of mobile manipulators to be used for assembly or other similar tasks. An AGV with an onboard robot arm was programmed to repeatedly move to and stop at a novel, reconfigurabl ...
