Case-Based Assembly Coordination Process Planning for Aircraft


Article Preview

To improve efficiency and veracity of planning ACP, and to adequately utilize some knowledge or experience in ACP and the minds of assembly engineers, we apply CBR to ACP planning and present an approach to ACP planning based on CBR for aircraft. The approach mainly includes three aspects: (1) building case library of ACP and defining QC. (2) designing a algorithm searching ACC, including four key factors: SD of important coordination location; SD of assembly coordination approach; SD of assembly allowance requirement; SD of assembly benchmark; (3) retrieving and reusing ACC. Lastly, as shown by an example about a wing, our approach satisfies good efficiency and veracity of planning ACP and can make use of experiences of ACP.
