Flexible Manufacturing System for Mass Customization Manufacturing
Guixiu Qiao, R F. Lu, Charles R. McLean
Mass customization manufacturing (MCM) has been gaining recognition as an industrial revolution in the 21st century. This paper presents innovative approaches in realizing and exercising MCM in theoretical and practical applications. Strategies of generalized production line platform and modularization are explored to support dynamic reconfigurations of MCM. NIST?s XML-based Shop Data information integration specification is utilized to derive a data driven reconfigurable MCM modeling methodology. A simulation model of a Boeing aircraft major component assembly line is created and driven by a batch control file, which is generated from the XML-based Shop Data specification.
