Description:

This paper presents scenarios, from a productivity standpoint, of when a flexible automation system can be justified over a lower cost, fixed automation system. The traditional definitions of fixed and flexible automation systems are presented along with standard selection guidelines. A theoretical case study is offered with production requirements and machine costs. Calculations are performed to evaluate the productivity of a fixed automation solution and a flexible automation solution. Machine productivity variables are selected and altered to evaluate various situations. Author: Daniel E. Kandray, Kent State University, New Philadelphia, OH.
