Abstract

This paper describes the importance of allocating functions in advanced manufacturing systems, both for the system and for the people. Existing approaches to allocation are reviewed, along with some of their weaknesses. A set of requirements of allocation methods is outlined, which if met would promote their ‘usability’ for designers. As a result of collaborating in an ESPRIT CIM project, a new method for function allocation is described and its potential usability assessed.
