The concept of flexible manufacturing systems offers significant technological and economic advantages over traditional manufacturing methods, thus making possible the rapid prototyping and low-cost production of highly specialized parts. Recent advances in software methodology, which have been demonstrated effective at raising the level of feasible part complexity in the numerical control domain, offer promise toward achieving similar increases in the sophistication of robotic assembly operations. Dynamic simulation is necessary for programming robotic systems due to their complexity. A dynamic simulation manager is presented along with a discussion of the environment in which it will ultimately play a vital role.
