Abstract

Design of assembly lines is a knowledge intensive process relying significantly on experience and associated with high costs, long lead times and high probability of risks and reworks. This paper presents a methodology to support the early stage design of assembly lines through Knowledge Based Engineering (KBE). In this introductory paper the authors discuss the methodology to implement the KBE approach. A set of system engineering rules is extracted from direct interviews and domain best practices and knowledge about product and process is formalized. These rules will be implemented in a userfriendly platform allowing the design of first phase line layout by taking the defined system requirements (e.g. cycle time) as input. Then, the KBE approach is extended to a specific case study taken from the powertrain sector.
