Business process Re-Engineering (BPR) involves the Radical Redesigning complex and dynamic processes in Research and development (R&D) organizations with multi-layer projects is a difficult task. Previous researchers have proposed many perceptive approaches for BPR utilizing intuition and subjective judgment from “experts” at various stages of their implementation. The proposed method facilitates the reorganization of R&D processes to automate assembly lines; we have tested and evaluated various methods on part discrimination for a model conveyer line. An advanced method is developed on tracking and picking up a specified part among a variety of parts on a moving conveyer. The method consists of a part shape discrimination analysis following the image processing of CCD camera shots for on-conveyer parts retrieving stored images from a collection by comparing features automatically extracted from the images themselves. The common features used are mathematical measures of colour, texture or shape; hence virtually all current CBIR systems.
