Rapid One-of-a-kind Product Development discusses research in the development of new enabling technologies for small and medium companies. Scientific advancements presented include a novel product data modelling scheme to model product design, manufacturability and knowledge under a common data object; customised product development in a distributed environment; and new adaptive scheduling methods for the optimal production of a wide variety of customised products, taking into consideration all of the possible changes from customers and the uncertainties in manufacturing. The book also includes research towards a computer aided customer interface, which allows customer requirements and changes to be processed and integrated with technical designs in real time; adaptive and concurrent CAD methods and algorithms; and product modelling and system integration technologies. The reader will learn how to: a€c translate customer requirements to technical attributes; a€c develop new and innovative products to meet customer requirements and expectations; a€c evaluate and optimise a project design; a€c design production systems and use them efficiently; and a€c manage a variety of customised products. Rapid One-of-a-kind Product Development demonstrates how to develop new methods, tools and algorithms to address the problems in a mass customisation environment. It is a valuable source of information for researchers and engineers in the fields of design and manufacturing.This chapter proposes an agent-based process planning system (ABPPS) for sheet metal parts, and investigates how ... It also discusses current process planning problems and demonstrates how they can be solved using agent technology.
