Theory and Application of Modular Manufacturing for Complex Product System
To solve the rapidly increasing of complexity and uncertainty and inappropriate solving space of innovative with the complex product using the traditional combination manufacturing mode, this paper proposed modular manufacturing theory by separating the need of function, performance, structure, and size in the manufacturing process into the external modules and internal modules. The theory of generalize modularize decomposition, modules solving and optimize, modularize integrated are systematical represented. To reduce the complexity and uncertainty by the way of separate the business with internal model and external model. An example of installed and calibrated system of Laser device is given to illustrate the theory and methodology of modular manufacturing.
