In this thesis, a three machine robotic cell design is characterized. The machines may be served by one or two robots. For the purpose of analysis a three machine scenario with two robot is considered. For this case, all possible alternate layouts are analyzed. Then the conditions are derived when a cell configuration with three machines served by two robots provides less cycle time than a system of three machines served by a single robot. Further, the economics of having an additional robot is explored.Dept. of Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering.
