The modern results of artificial intelligence research have provided new techniques useful for the design of more sophisticated and advanced industrial robots. The use of computer integrated assembly systems is becoming more and more important in industrial applications. 'The purpose of this paper is to illustrate how with the use of an automatic problem solver it is possible to achieve the automatic emergency recovery from a failure occurring during the assembly process. An experimental computer program implementing the required problem solving activity has been written in MICROPLANNER and tested on a UNIVAC 1108 computer.
