This paper proposed the design method for an automated assembly lines, for carrying out basic design using three
dimensional computer graphics (3DCG).It also proposes a method for performing kaizen and evaluation of
automated systems utilizing hierarchic structure diagrams, state transition diagrams, improved tooling flow
diagrams, a method for creating a Ladder Logic Diagram(LLD).Using a time Petri net, analyze the bottleneck
process, identify problem points, and propose ideas for kaizen.
