Conference/Workshop Paper


Swedish Production Symposium 2014


As a test bed for the Case-Based Reasoning (CBR) approach for automating processes adjustments, the Volvo Car manufacturing process for parts known as crossmembers is chosen. To test the CBR based system, a subset of solved cases is selected and fed as simulated new cases, to developed prototype CBR system. The results show that the CBR is a valuable and promising methodology that can be used for improving this, and other similar industrial processes.
