The assembly process is sometimes blocked due to excessive dimension deviations during large-scale assembly. It is inefficient to improve the assembly quality by trial assembly, inspection, and accuracy compensation in the case of excessive deviations. Therefore, assemblability prediction by analyzing the measurement data, assembly accuracy requirements, and the pose of parts is an effective way to discover the assembly deviations in advance for measurement-assisted assembly. In this paper, a

An assemblability analysis method is proposed to check whether the assembly can be executed directly. Aiming at the incoordination problem, an assemblability optimization method based on the union coordination space is proposed. Finally, taking the space manipulator assembly as an example, the result shows that the proposed method can improve assemblability with a better assembly quality and less workload compared to the least-squares method.
