In the glass industry, automation is a widely used and well accepted technology in each step of the production. Product modularity and standardization during the design phase allow for easy and fast system integration by combining standard components. Robots work best when the product development and manufacturing processes are designed for robotic application. We define and develop an optimization algorithm based on big bang-big crunch methodology that solves robotized glass cutting problem.
