Abstract
THE PROPOSED EXPERT SYSTEM FOR CIRCUIT BOARD ASSEMBLY IS AN ENGINEERING SOFTWARE TOOL WHOSE GOAL IS TO HELP AN ORGANIZATION TO OPTIMIZE THE PLACEMENT AND INSERTION SEQUENCE OF ELECTRONIC PART COMPONENTS FOR A CIRCUIT CARD ASSEMBLY USING KITTED PARTS. IT ASSUMES THAT THE ASSEMBLY PROCESS IS NOT A SERIAL DECISION METHOD, RATHER, IT IS A PROCESS WITH PARALLEL INTERACTION FROM ORIGINATION OF A CONCEPTUAL DESIGN FOR A PCB TO DIRECT LINKAGE WITH DESIGN, AND ASSEMBLY CONSIDERATIONS. THE TOOL'S PRIMARY VALUE IS THAT IT INTEGRATES KNOWLEDGE IN A CONCISE FORM AND CONTENT FROM TRADITIONALLY SEPARATE SOURCES. BY FORMALLY ESTABLISHING DESIGN RULES AND ASSEMBLY CRITERIA, THE PROPOSED SYSTEM WILL PROVIDE AN OPTIMAL COMPONENT INSERTION SEQUENCE FOR KITTED COMPONENTS.
