Prof. Amro M. Farid presents Reconfigurable Manufacturing System Research at IEEE Systems, Man and Cybernetics Conference in Manchester, UK

A Reconfigurable manufacturing system is a system that is designed at the outset for rapid change in structure, as well as in hardware and software components, in order to quickly adjust production capacity and functionality within a part family in response to sudden changes in market or regulatory requirements.  The challenge in the design of such systems is how to enable such reconfigurations and why.   One piece in the design puzzle is production path enumeration.  On Wednesday October 16th, Prof. Amro M. Farid presented his latest work on Reconfigurable Manufacturing Systems at the IEEE Systems Man and Cybernetics Conference, Manchester UK.  This paper entitled:  “An Axiomatic Design Approach to Non-Assembled Production Path Enumeration in Reconfigurable Manufacturing Systems”  combines Axiomatic Design for Large Flexible Systems with graph theory to present novel approaches to the design of reconfigurable manufacturing systems.

Full text of the paper and previous work may be found through the LIINES Website  publications page under paper code [RMS-C08].

Research Theme Highlight Part III: Transportation Electrification Systems

The Laboratory for Intelligent Integrated Networks of Engineering Systems maintains a research program composed of four complementary themes.  In the fourth of a four part series on the LIINES website,  the laboratory’s Transportation Electrification Systems is highlighted.  This work has produced in Abu Dhabi the first full-scale technical feasibility study for electric vehicles and has gone on to produce a hybrid dynamic system model of a Transportation Electricity Nexus as a single integrated system.

Prof. Amro M. Farid participates in MIT Workshop on Modeling Social, Technical and Natural Systems for Policy

On September 25-27, Prof. Amro M. Farid participated in an invited workshop entitled:  “Modeling Social, Technical and Natural Systems for Policy” as organized by the MIT Engineering Systems Division.  This goal of this workshop was to catalyze a larger community of research and practice interested in technology, policy and related issues.  There is a need for researchers, academics and practitioners in technology, science and policy to increasingly develop common methods in education, research and practice.
