Abstract
An Intelligent Fixturing System (IFS) is currently being developed to hold a family of cylinder heads for machining operations. This system incorporat es a Part Location System (PLS) to locate the workpiece reference frame of a cylinder head relative to a pallet. This two-part paper describes the dev elopment and evaluation of various part location algorithms that have been created for this application. Part 1 of this paper provides a detailed desc ription of the IFS and the PLS and of the cylinder head location problem. I t also provides a detailed description of three different algorithms that w ere developed for the PLS. The first algorithm, SeQuential Least Squares (S QLS), is based on the sequential, parametric regression model. The second c lass of algorithms, SiMultaneous Least Squares (SMLS), is based on the simu ltaneous, parametric regression model. The third algorithm, SQLS-SMLS (fixe d cd) is a hybrid of the first two methods.
