Abstract

This paper presents a new generic Petri net (PN) model for design and performance evaluation of a flexible assembly system (FAS) and disassembly system (DAS) with dual kanban. The architectural design of the model is derived from a generic bill of materials (BOMs) in the FAS, a reverse BOM in the DAS and the process plan in the case of flexible manufacturing system (FMS). Integration of FMS, FAS and DAS by developing a new generic PN model with the pull system is introduced. Analysis and performance evaluation of the new model based on invariant analysis and linear programming are also introduced. The method will be illustrated by a small case study.
