Why is Compliance Needed in Flexible Assembly? Flexible assembly in a modern production environment poses very specific problems. The need for flexibility is well established and is mainly due to the desire to bring the economic advantages of mass production into a changing marketplace, where the trend goes towards smaller batches, larger product variety and faster response to the customer's expectations. This article describes only compliance, one of the many different and difficult problems which are inherent in such an environment, and the solution which the InFACT project (EUREKA/FAMOS EU321) has adopted.
