The system accepts orders to be filled in the form of number of balls to be assembled into a tube, color of each ball, ordering vs non-ordering of the balls, value of order and two deadlines. Orders are accepted when the ai planner in conjunction with the Spring Kernel's scheduler determines the feasibility of completion of the product within the deadline. Orders are then filled under the direction of the scheduler by the flapper moving balls from the rotating table to the linear table followed by the robot picking them up and delivering them to a particular tube.
