Presents the experiences of a medium-sized Australian manufacturer with cellular manufacturing over the past ten years. The case study reveals that careful planning and implementation are not the only component of ongoing success in a flexible cell environment and that effective management of...
Manufacturing facilities may simplify their operations by converting from a process-based layout to manufacturing cells. Mathematically, many possible configurations of cells exist, so it may prove computationally infeasible to analyse them all. Also, some current methods of cell design do not...
An integer multiple objective non-linear mathematical programming formulation is developed for simultaneously forming part/machine cells. In the proposed model, generic capability units which are termed as resource elements are used to define the processing requirements of parts and processing...
Inventory control models deal with production planning in order to minimize inventory and shortage cost, while cellular manufacturing analysis mainly addresses how machines should be grouped and parts be produced. A mathematical programming model is developed using an integrated approach for...
Contrasts functional layouts and cellular layouts with regard to the effects of set-up time reduction and lot size on flow time and through-put. The structural environment for the functional analysis is an efficient functional system with a staged sequence of four machine centers with...
Data drawn from a longitudinal case study of change is used to examine contextual factors in the conception, uptake and operation of manufacturing cells. Attention is given to the external context of change and the importance of internal factors, such as the technical configuration of work, and...
Reports on a new methodology for formation of virtual ("extended") machining cells using generic capability patterns termed "resource elements". Resource elements are used to uniquely describe the processing requirements of the component mix and dynamically match them to the processing...
