During the early 1980s, the concept of a flexible assembly machine was first suggested by Hounsfield (1983). Following this, a variety of research projects have been conducted in an attempt to develop a flexible assembly system that is functional and economically viable. The most significant contribution has been made by the EURICA EU 321 - FAMOS - INFACT* project. However, despite the developments made during these projects, no industrial based system exists today. This paper presents a simulation model of a novel concept for a multi-station flexible automatic assembly machine, and examines the application of a rule based control strategy for the control of a materials handling system used in such a system.
