GENETIC-BASED APPROACH TO THE FUNCTIONAL-MODULAR STRUCTURE DESIGN OF PACKAGING MACHINES

Print

ABSTRACT

The paper presents a method for decomposition of packaging machineĀ structure in order to provide the designer with choices for feasible assemblies. The aim is at providing a systematic approach to explore a large number of decompositions prior to the detailed component design phase. The structure is transformed to a graph with equivalent topology by a genetic algorithm.
