The Research of Agile Manufacturing Based on Load Current of the Equipment
The agility of manufacturing is the key to agile manufacturing (AM). An enterprise can achieve agile manufacturing by inter-firm cooperation or by improving the agility of firms itself internal process. The information about operating state of equipment plays an important role in agile manufacturing and it has a homologous relationship with load current, which has different features at different work loads. According to these, we can collect and statistic devices working information by detecting and analysing the current of the equipment. On this basis, we submit the implementation strategy for agile manufacturing based on equipment load current, achieve the goal of improving the overall agility of the manufacture enterprise by effective agility promotion of production operations planning and manufacturing process control. This method can promote the rationality of resource utilizations in process of manufacture, and improve the agility of the enterprise.
