Tolerance Redistributing of the Reassembly Dimensional Chain on Measure of Uncertainty
AbstractHow to use the limited precision of remanufactured parts to assemble higher-quality remanufactured products is a challenge for remanufacturing engineering under uncertainty. On the basis of analyzing the uncertainty of remanufacturing parts, this paper takes tolerance redistributing of the reassembly (remanufactured assembly) dimensional chain as the research object. An entropy model to measure the uncertainty of assembly dimensional is built, and we quantify the degree of the uncertainty gap between reassembly and assembly. Then, in order to make sure the uncertainty of reassembly is not lower than that of assembly, the tolerance redistribution optimization model of the reassembly dimensional chain is proposed which is based on the tolerance of the grading allocation method. Finally, this paper takes the remanufactured gearbox assembly dimension chain as an example. The redistribution optimization model saves 19.11% of the cost with the assembly precision of remanufactured products. It provides new technical and theoretical support to expand the utilization rate of remanufactured parts and improve reassembly precision. View Full-Text
