An Optimization Method Selecting the Location Points for Drilling and Riveting of Aircraft’s Wing Panel
In order to select the optimal location points for automated drilling and riveting process, an optimization method selecting the location points of Aircraft’s Wing Panel in Automatic Drilling and Riveting System is presented. This method includes three steps: 1) building the matching model based on the multiplicity; 2) presenting the matching method based on scatter search algorithm; 3) selecting the optimal location points according to the minimal deviation based on linear programming method. This method was applied in a panel to match the mathematical surface and the fitting one of this panel perfectly and select the optimal location points. The efficacy and quality during the process of drilling and riveting of this panel was improved greatly.
