Abstract: Under a mass individualisation paradigm, the individualised design of manufacturing systems is difficult as it involves adaptive integrating both new and legacy machines for the formation of part families with uncertainty. A systematic virtual model mirroring the real world of manufacturing system is essential to bridge the gap between its design and operation. This paper presents a digital twin-driven methodology for rapid individualised designing of the automated flow-shop manufacturing system. The digital t…
