Chapter 5

Developing a Solution

Abstract

This chapter outlines the steps required to develop the concept for a potential automation application. The initial step is the definition of the key parameters, such as the part details and production rates. We then discuss the development of the initial concept in terms of the main applications, including arc welding, machine tool tending, palletising, packing, and assembly, before providing information for other applications. We also identify the main control and safety issues considered at the concept stage, as well as the use of testing and simulation in refining the initial concept.
