Robotic workcell design toolkit for automated system integration education Academic Article uri icon


  • Engineers constantly design and reconfigure automated systems to accommodate shifts in product design or manufacturing priorities. Often engineers require years of experience to become expert in this area. This paper addresses the motive, contents, and evaluation of a web-based robotic workcell design tool kit created to help students learn the design process systematically. The motive is based on interviews with application engineers at system integration companies. Components include problem, design and analysis. In addition, the toolkit allows the instructor to add new design problems that can capture users' mouse movements and key selections for research and teaching purposes. © 2007 TEMPUS Publications.
