IDEC's robot‐based cellular production system: a challenge to automate high‐mix low‐volume production
Article publication date: 28 September 2010
The purpose of this paper is to provide a report of the world first robotized cellular production system developed by IDEC Corporation.
The work is based on an interview with the development team of IDEC Corporation.
The paper finds that the IDEC system is a success that paved a way to the future automated cellular production system that enables high‐mix, low‐volume production.
The paper provides an up‐to‐date insight into how to automate high‐mix low‐volume production.
The paper elaborates how a robotized cellular production system is realized.
