Yeung, Ka Yiu and Chen, Xun (2007) 3D freeform component fixture design optisation using a genetic algorithm. In: Proceedings of Computing and Engineering Annual Researchers' Conference 2007: CEARC’07. University of Huddersfield, Huddersfield, pp. 1-6.

This paper details an application of genetic algorithms (GA) developed for the optimisation of fixture locator positioning for 3D freeform components. Based on the information of the workpiece, a genetic algorithm based approach is applied to determine the most statically stable fixture configuration from a large number of possible candidates. The preliminary implementation is introduced to demonstrate the ability of GA in automated fixture design.
