The last two decades have witnessed important shifts in
customers' behaviour. Companies now need to integrate customers in
their strategies and manufacturers have to propose a large variety
of products to meet the market's demand. Increasing the range of
PVs attracts and retains customers, yet it dramatically augments
the cost and complexity of the manufacturing systems. As many
decisions taken at the design stage of the product are decisive for
its entire life, it is crucial to integrate the process and the
assembly system when designing the product.
Integrated Design of a Product Family and Its Assembly System
presents an integrated approach for the design of a product family
and its assembly system, whose main principles consider the product
family as a fictitious unique product for which the assembly system
is to be devised. It imposes assembly and operation constraints as
late as possible in the design process to get liberties in the
system design, and adapts the product family at each design stage
to integrate the new constraints related to the successive design
Integrated Design of a Product Family and Its Assembly System is an
important, must-have book for researchers and Ph.D. students in
Computer-Integrated Manufacturing, Mechanical Engineering, and
Manufacturing, as well as practitioners in the Design, Planning and
Production departments in the manufacturing industry. Integrated
Design of a Product Family and Its Assembly System is also suitable
for use as a textbook in courses such as Computer-Aided Design,
Concurrent Engineering, Design for Assembly, Process Planning, and
