Abstract

The demand today for more flexibility in manufacturing systems is being driven by our automotive customers' production schedules.

Several factors are involved: auto companies are entering into more niche markets, models have a shorter product life and the customer wants to lower the capital investment required for changeover or introduction of a new product.
