title Evaluating Assemblies of Planar Parts Using the Liaison Graph and System Dynamics
source Architecture in Computro [26th eCAADe Conference Proceedings / ISBN 978-0-9541183-7-2] Antwerpen (Belgium) 17-20 September 2008, pp. 767-774
summary Current research on design and fabrication of planar part assemblies focuses on generative design methods, leaving analysis and evaluation of assemblability to be studied with empirical methods such as physical mockups. As a consequence, there is little understanding on whether a design is assemblable, or on how much time the assembling process might take. This paper proposes a new formal method to evaluate assemblability of interlocking planar parts that uses Network Analysis to evaluate assembly structure and System Dynamics to evaluate performance of assembling process.
