Rapid selection and configuration of standardised assembly modules is one of the critical factors for companies to sustain a competitive advantage in areas such as precision assembly. To make the process more efficient end users and system integrators need to interact together more closely in identifying and delivering the best possible solutions. The paper reports on a process model and an assembly equipment model specifically developed to support linguistic mapping of user requirements to assembly workstation solutions. The approach targets time compression and cost reduction for rapid deployment of assembly workstations. The reported work is part of the recently started Eureka Factory E-RACE project.
