Platform-based development and large product variety puts high demands on flexibility and adaptability in the assembly systems.
Smart Assembly refers to a next generation capability in assembly systems and technologies which integrate “virtual” and “physical” methods in order to achieve dramatic improvements in productivity, lead-time, quality and agility.
The area contributes to develop new methods and tools that support assembly and design for assembly. Smart Assembly is one of three research themes in Wingquist Laboratory VINN Excellence Centre Stage 3.
