Mathematical Modeling of Manufacturing Process Plan, Optimization Analysis with Stochastic and DSM Modeling Techniques


Article Preview

The first job of the manufacturing workforce as they get novel drawings is to carry out the process planning. This task, once finished, usually direct both the organization and manufacturing setups. Process planning in manufacturing setup offers a specific and clear chronological path regarding how the product should be running and fabricated in a manufacturing system. In highly developed manufacturing setups, this would persuade, how the setup will be planned and laid out in grounding for the novel product. In this research work, fundamental process plan is developed for a side plate manufacturing together with all design and user requirements. Mathematically modeling is done using progressive closed loop approach. Research then searches the capabilities of optimization techniques like DSM (dependency structure matrix) and a novel stochastic search to provide the best approximate process planning solution. Finally the global optimization is analysed in both the techniques and one technique reaches at optimum solution.
