Title: Multi-flow control of flexible machining cells
Authors: Rahimifard, Shahin
Issue Date: 1996
Publisher: © S. Rahimifard
Abstract: This thesis reports on the research carried out into the design and implementation of an integrated planning and control system, where the issues involved in the· short term planning and control of the interrelated flows of workpieces, fixtures and cutting tools are addressed simultaneously. Multi-Flow Control is the research terminology used in this thesis for such a planning and control system. The principal objective of the research is to generate knowledge and generic solutions to harmonise the interactions between these three fundamental material flows within machining cells and to reduce the overall manufacturing cost.
