SIMULATION OF PRODUCTS CLASSIFICATION SYSTEM FOR MANUFACTURING COST FORECASTING
AbstractThis paper deals with product classification system, which is an essential factor to find proper product's performance and manufacturing cost, and potential manufacturer in production enterprises. The developed system can help classifying different products with similar purpose and functions on the separate class level in accordance of their characteristics and properties. The classification procedure is based on the data input at the interactive regime and applies attributes such as object mass, size, volume, power, speed and so on. For products that fall on the same class, the forecasting model of manufacturing cost has been developed. Forecasting model is grounded on the mathematical regression equation. The developed classification system and manufacturing resources forecasting model have been tested and validated in both laboratory and industry. The proposed research creations have been implemented in virtual manufacturing system and employed at the early stage of new product and process development stage.
