Design parameters of part-ordering devices Design parameters selection and ordering of part-orienting devices† Academic Article uri icon


  • We study the design problem of part-orienting systems which are often employed in many manufacturing environments to orient parts for assembly or to perform operations. A part-orienting system is composed of a number of orienting devices. The problem of selecting proper design parameters for the devices and of serially ordering them to make up the system is addressed in this paper. The problem is illustrated through a real example. Heuristic algorithms have been developed and computer experiments have been performed to evaluate their relative performances. © 1990 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
