4 pagesDate: May 31, 2024


In this study, we conduct a comparative analysis of advanced optimisation techniques: particle swarm optimization (PSO) and bacterial foraging optimization (BFO), applied to parallel assembly sequence planning (PASP) for a 10 MW wind turbine gearbox. The research focuses on optimising the assembly sequence to enhance efficiency, reduce costs, and improve the quality of the final product. We estimated a 10% improvement in assembly time using an enhanced PSO algorithm and a 15% improvement with BCF, alongside significant cost reductions and slight enhancements in quality. This comparative study elucidates the strengths and adaptability of both algorithms in handling complex optimization challenges within industrial applications. The results underscore the potential of these enhanced techniques to significantly impact the operational efficiency of large-scale manufacturing processes, particularly in the renewable energy sector. By systematically analysing the performance of improved PSO and BCF, this paper contributes valuable insights into optimising the assembly of intricate machinery, aiming for optimal resource utilisation and quality assurance in producing wind turbine gearboxes.
