The authors propose acquiring heuristic rules automatically for generating assembly sequences efficiently. Heuristic rules are reduced from training examples by inductive learning. Additional training examples are made from information on assembly sequences and used for modifying heuristic rules. As the assembly sequence generation and modification of heuristic rules are executed more, heuristic rules are refined and assembly sequences are generated efficiently. An experiment demonstrated the effectiveness of the approach.
