Paper Abstract

There are several algorithms proposed in the literature for planning the sequence of tasks performed during the assembly of a mechanical part. All these algorithms are functional in the sense that they concentrate on the functionalities to be implemented. In this paper, an object- oriented approach is used in developing such an algorithm. The relational (functional) AND- OR graph generation algorithm by Homem-de-Mello and Sanderson is taken as the basis for the new approach. The equivalence of the object-oriented model to the functional model is informally justified by showing that the AND-OR graph generated is the same in both the approaches. Advantages of using object-oriented approach are also discussed.
