The present research has arisen from a continuation of the WRAPS (Welding Robotic Adaptive Programming and Simulation) project at Loughborough University, and its development as the supervisory controller of a flexible welding system. A knowledge based expert system (PIKBES) has been developed for on-line expert modification of pre-programmed welding procedures during fabrication of batches in a flexible adaptive robotic welding environment.
