During recent years numerous design for assembly methods have been developed to optimize product design for robotic assembly and hence reduce assembly costs. Various bottlenecks in product design are, however, still encountered with the widespread application of robotic assembly systems. These are mainly due to a lack of integral insight into the product design variables. Discusses these variables from an integral point of view, by means of a developed assembly model.
