Bruce Romney, PhD
My Ph.D. was conferred by Stanford on April 3, 1997.
I am now working in Palo Alto, CA, at the Automation and Robotics
Laboratory of Lockheed-Martin Missiles
& Space Co.
Research at Stanford:
My doctoral research has been in automatic assembly-planning, i.e.,
artificial-intelligence systems which can automatically determine how to
assemble products from their parts.
Specifically, the main focus of this research has been
Sequence/Fixture Co-Design, that
is, the concurrent design of both assembly sequences and the fixtures
required to hold the product in place during assembly.
My dissertation on the subject, On the Concurrent Design of
Assembly Sequences and Fixtures, is available for the asking.
Prior to that, I worked on the
Stanford Assembly Analysis Tool (STAAT), a project in automatic assembly
sequence generation and analysis.
