Abstract

As manufacturing activities have been widely globalized, it is becoming more and more difficult to respond to changes quickly. It is also important to take a positive stand against environmental issues to pursue the sustainability of the global environment without wasting resources related to production activities. The purpose of this paper is to establish a lifecycle-oriented design method of production systems. For this end, we have developed prototype system for life-cycle simulator, which is constructed by a demand scenario generation module and a simulation assessment module. We also conducted a simple comparative experiment taking two configuration plans for a transfer line and a cell line as examples in order to verify the effectiveness of this proposed technology.
