Process of part orientation with single- and multiple steps via mathematical programming Conference Paper uri icon


  • We present a mathematical programming approach for describing the process of part orientation for a single-part type with single- and multiple-step active devices. The objective function focuses on maximizing the efficiency, evaluated as the probability of correctly orienting the part. The approach is further demonstrated using illustrative examples which show that it can be used in industry to determine the best step size(s) to use in part-feeder mechanisms.
