—This paper investigates an assembly sequence planning approach with fireworks algorithm. To solve the problem of assembly sequence planning, the relevant operations of fireworks algorithm are discussed, and the frequency of assembly orientation change, the frequency of assembly tool change, and the frequency of operation change are taken into account in the fitness function of assembly sequence planning. The steps of fireworks algorithm for assembly sequence planning are investigated and finally a case study is given to verify the algorithm.
