The selection of part types for simultaneous processing in a Flexible Manufacturing System (FMS) is one of the most responsible phases of the short‐time production planning. The batching approach to part type selection is more popular in practice but this leads to the requirement for a...
Reports on a comparison by computer simulation between conventional periodic loading (PL) and job‐group loading (JGL). When conventional PL is used, the search of the best part input sequence must be performed in order to optimize performance of a flexible manufacturing system (FMS). JGL works,...
The spatial representation technique is an efficient method for packing boxes into a container; however, it has a limitation in dealing with constraints. For practical applications, there are however limitations when dealing with constraints. These constraints provide flexibility for the user to...
The problems of pattern cutting as applied to flexible elastic mesh fabrics (lace) are described within the context of the total manufacturing process. While the design and knitting stages of lace manufacture are highly computerised, providing associated benefits, the cutting room operates with...
This paper describes a process to implement manufacturing strategies that are consistent with a particular company’s overall business strategies. The company is situated in Hong Kong and its manufacturing plants are in China. It specializes in the design and manufacturing of telecommunication...
An executive information system (EIS) is a high‐reward, high‐risk project and is often developed with high expectations which end in failure. There exist significant barriers to the creation of a successful EIS. However, as more lessons are learned from previous failed attempts, many innovations...
