This paper delineates the development process of a systematic approach in determining the workspace area, and manufacturing throughput time, of robot work cell. The primary goal of this work is to provide a fast and easy configuration model with minimal cost, human involvement, trial and errors adjustments. The configuration model is constituted based on the variant-shaped configuration concept with its mathematical model. Robot work cell configuration concept with its mathematical models are deliberated in this paper where integration of these findings will be able to provide a framework in modeling the graphical user interface (GUI) of the configuration model. This work utilizes the CATIA V5 software where it involves the CATIA VBA and macro tool. The completion of this work could provide a basis for future investigation in developing high quality configuration model of the multiple robot work cells.
