Paper Title:
Computer Aided Construction, Evaluation and Improvement of a Workplace Assembly Layout Using CADWORK
  Abstract

A computerized approach as opposed to a manual approach provides a fast and easy way of generating various workplace layouts in situ and consequently, CADWORK, a computerized heuristic capable of constructing a workplace from scratch, evaluating and improving a workplace fed into it, has been applied in this paper to design a workplace for the assembly of a domestic fan. An assembly layout constructed and evaluated by CADWORK yielded a cycle time of 1758.99 TMU at 100 BS performance level. Further modification of the workplace to search for improvements yielded an assembly time of 1623.09 TMU for the domestic fan.
