Abstract

The FMS Software Library has been created by the author with the aim of providing modular software tools and turnkey programs for designing, implementing, controlling and maintaining FMS (Flexible Manufacturing Systems). The Library, capable of running on over thirty different micro-, and mini computers, contains user friendly programs for FMS project planning, DNC control, assembly line balancing, FMS crew size analysis, conventional and dynamic scheduling, part programming using a macro library, batch size analysis, FMS capacity planning, pallet alignment and positioning error calculation for machining centres, graphic simulation and design of robot arms, robot positioning and orientation error analysis and a variety of FMS data bases. The paper gives a general overview as well as discussing some of the packages in more detail.
