helped by bar codes which are read and fed into the system for monitoringquantity, location, movement etc. They help the automated systems to startinformation and provide information for effecting any changes necessary. Tomake effective use of automated machines, we need to have the movementof materials from and to different time as stores, automated, Automatedstorage and Retrieval systems- ASRS- receive orders for materials fromanywhere in the production area, collect materials in the works times.Computers and information systems are used for placing orders for matters,give commands adjust inventory records which show the location andquantity of materials needed.Automated guided vehicle systems- AGVS – are pallet trucks and unitload carriers follow embedded guide wires or paint strips to destinations asprogrammed.In an automobile showroom we can see all the work automatically withlatest machine.
2.State the important considerations for locating an automobileplant? Collect information on layout planning of an automobileplant from various sources and furnish the same.
To locate an automobile company or plant many thing should beconsider. For an automobile plant automated flaw lines, automated assemblylines, flexible manufacturing systems, global transition rapid prototyping.Building manufacturing flexibility things are necessity.About the automated flow lines we can say it is a machine which islinked by a transfer system which moves the parts by using handlingmachines which are also automated, we have an automated flow line.Human intervention ma is needed to verify that the operations aretaking place according to standards. When these can be achieved with thehelp of automation and the processes are conducted with self regulation, wewill have automated flow lines established.In fixed automation or hard automation, where one component ismanufactured using services operations and machines it is possible toachieve this condition. We assume that product life cycles are sufficientlystable to interest heavily on the automate flow lines to achieve reduces castper unit.3 |Page
