Cell‐based Manufacturing Systems: Design and Implementation

Cell‐based Manufacturing Systems: Design and Implementation Outlines some major features that should be incorporated into the design of cell‐based manufacturing systems. Presents these features as a series of observations which are based on experiences gained during a three‐year period covering the implementation of such a system. Presents a set of rules that are commonly applied to the design, implementation and management of cell‐based manufacturing systems. Each rule is then examined in the context of actual experience and comments are given as to the major contribution made by each rule to the successful implementation of the manufacturing system. It is hoped that the information contained in this work will be of general interest to organizations moving towards similar implementations in that it presents one view of the problems that must be met, and some suggested solutions. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png International Journal of Operations & Production Management Emerald Publishing

Abstract

Outlines some major features that should be incorporated into the design of cell‐based manufacturing systems. Presents these features as a series of observations which are based on experiences gained during a three‐year period covering the implementation of such a system. Presents a set of rules that are commonly applied to the design, implementation and management of cell‐based manufacturing systems. Each rule is then examined in the context of actual experience and comments are given as to the major contribution made by each rule to the successful implementation of the manufacturing system. It is hoped that the information contained in this work will be of general interest to organizations moving towards similar implementations in that it presents one view of the problems that must be met, and some suggested solutions.
