Fabrication and assembly operations, Part III: Matrix methods for processing configuration data

by P. G. Loewner
This discussion presents a unified method for organizing the configuration data of manufacturing files, and for generating and retrieving essential quantities from the files. The required processing operations, which include various requirements and engineering-change computations, are explained with the aid of matrix algebra. An important objective of the method is to permit a reasonably optimal balance between the bulk-storage requirements and the amount of time required for processing.
