Glass Factory Assembly Line Simulation

April 2010|Tags: java, programming

The Factory Assembly Line Simulation was a 10 Person team project with 5 front-end people doing the GUI, and 5 people doing the backend agent control that drove the simulation.

I worked on the backend of this project, designing the Glass Loader agent which is the first robot in the assembly line. The Glass Loader first took glass production requests from the GUI which indicated the number and type of glass to be produced. For each glass request, it would then generate the appropriate actions needed to be performed on the glass and then pass this information along with the glass piece, further down the assembly line.

A video of an entire run-through of the simulation can be seen below:

I also developed the particle system used by the simulation. The project page on my website is here
