Investigation into optimal fixturing cost of an assembly using genetic algorithm

Easwara Pillai Raj Kumar, Krishnamoorthi Annamalai

Abstract


Due to the rapid response required in many manufacturing companies, the fixture design principles must be integrated and properly detailed so as to facilitate the fast design development of an optimization methods and various approaches used in fixture design problems are discussed in this paper. Then an Overview of applications of evolutionary algorithms to different domains os fixture design problems is given. The paper presents here the main features of genetic algorithm and its application in defining cost of an assembly fixture design.

Keywords


fixture design; genetic algorithm; optimization
