In remanufacturing processes the condition of the used products is unknown. This leads to many challenges which are special to the domain of remanufacturing and not known from manufacturing. One of these challenges is the stochastic routing of products based on the unknown product conditions. This problem in particular requires a flexible scheduling and control system for the remanufacturing system as well as the intralogistics. The aim of this research is to optimize the scheduling and control of remanufacturing systems considering the flexible material transport by AGVs. Therefore the networking of all resources is organized as an embedded system treating the remanufacturing system as a cyber-physical system in the context of industry 4.0. The scheduling and control of the remanufacturing system will be achieved by a combination of multi-agent technology to deal with unexpected events and the optimization of the schedule by simultaneous scheduling of machines and AGVs. Machine scheduling and transport scheduling have been vastly studied by many researchers, but most of the works address both problems separately. However, these two problems are closely linked and influence each other. By looking at them together, it is possible to achieve an improvement in the overall schedule. In the first step of the research work, the simultaneous scheduling of machines and AGVs has been compared with the currently used sequential scheduling within a simulation study. For this purpose, benchmark instances known in the literature were used. The simulation results show the superiority of the simultaneous scheduling of machines and AGVs. [less ▲]

Remanufacturing is a process for used products to make them “as good as new or better”. A remanufacturing system typically consists of the processes disassembly, cleaning, inspection, reconditioning reassembly and testing. Due to unknown condition of the used products many challenges occur which are special to the domain of remanufacturing and not know from manufacturing. The resulting stochastic routing of products and material in particular places special demands on the flexibility of the production planning and control (PPC) in remanufacturing systems. In order to enable stochastic routing, Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) are used, which also contributes to increasing the complexity of the PPC. Especially the simultaneous scheduling of machines and AGVs has to be addressed in order to enable an optimal remanufacturing process. This paper provides an overview about current research activities in the field of PPC in remanufacturing and scheduling approaches for AGVs. Furthermore, a promising approach to enable the required flexibility of the remanufacturing system and to control the dynamics contained therein is the use of a multi-agent technology. The proposed approach consists of an optimization of the PPC using a multi-agent based simulation. The multi agent-based simulation consists of intelligent agents that negotiate with each other in order to find an optimal solution and achieve high flexibility. [less ▲]

This work gives a state-of-the-art overview regarding the scheduling of Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV) in Flexible (Re-)Manufacturing Systems (FMS/FRMS). Different, general approaches are available to solve this task. In this regard an overview of currently available fleet management software and research in this field as well as the simultaneous scheduling of machines and AGVs is given. Production scheduling and transport scheduling have been vastly studied by many researchers, but most of the works address these both problems separately. However, these two problems are closely linked and influence each other. By looking at them together, it is possible to achieve an improvement in the overall scheduling. The different works are examined regarding the consideration of one available machine for each tasks, or if alternative machines are available and if the approaches are static or dynamic. Especially the appropriability of the presented works regarding the use in remanufacturing systems is examined. Remanufacturing is a process for used products to make them “as good as new or better”. Due to unknown condition of the used products many challenges occur during the remanufacturing process which are special to the domain of remanufacturing and not know from manufacturing. The resulting stochastic routing of products and material in particular places special demands on the flexibility and dynamic of the scheduling and control of the remanufacturing system. In order to meet the challenges of a real remanufacturing system, the scheduling algorithm should consider alternative machines as well as be dynamic. None of the approaches examined can meet these requirements, which is why new methods have to be developed. [less ▲]

Die Refabrikation gebrauchter Bauteile erlaubt eine erhebliche Einsparung von Rohstoffen, Energie und Kosten. Der hohe Anteil an manueller Arbeit im Refabrikationsschritt Demontage verringert allerdings die Wirtschaftlichkeit. Dadurch wird die Implementierung der Refabrikati-on im industriellen Umfeld oftmals verhindert. Die Vollautomatisierung des Demontagepro-zesses ist aufgrund der Komplexität und der damit verbundenen Kosten, in vielen Fällen nicht umsetzbar. Hier bietet die Zusammenarbeit zwischen Mensch und Roboter einen vielverspre-chenden Ansatz zur Erhöhung der Prozesseffizienz. Bei einer Zusammenarbeit zwischen Mensch und Roboter spielt deren Interaktion und Kommunikation eine zentrale Rolle. In dieser Arbeit wird deshalb vorgestellt, welche Interaktionsrollen der Mensch in einem Demon-tageprozess einnehmen kann, welche Kommunikationskanäle sich zur Informationsübertra-gung eignen und wie diese in einer Demontageapplikation umgesetzt werden können. Bei dieser Applikation wird die Demontage einer Zusatzkühlmittelpumpe aus dem Automobilbe-reich, mit Hilfe einer agentenbasierten Steuerung vorgestellt. Dazu wurden einige neue Interaktionsformen Mensch-Roboter entwickelt, die den geplanten kollaborativen Einsatz erleichtern sollen. [less ▲]

Remanufacturing of used technical products allows saving of raw material and energy. The complex and mostly manual disassembly of the products prevents the application of remanufacturing in industry. The fully automated dismantling can not be achieved and the manual work causes high labour costs. Companies can profit by remanufacturing. Using human-robot collaboration for disassembly allows a certain degree of automation and provides the flexibility and knowledge of the human. This is a promising approach to economically realise a disassembly and remanufacturing of products which are difficult to disassemble or have a high variance. [less ▲]
