Abstract

Cellular manufacturing is the organisation of manufacturingequipment based on the requirements of the product or component.Transition to cellular manufacturing generally requires reorganisationof existing equipment. It is likely that the existing equipment alone isnot suitable for a cellular layout. During the cell planning and designphase equipment investment analysis is important to identify equipmentneeds. Transition from job shop production to cellular production isdetailed. Cell formation and cell evaluation techniques are provided toassist in equipment procurement decisions. In particular, a structuredprocedure and analytical tools are given to evaluate fully the cellularsystem to identify appropriate equipment and methods. A case example isprovided to explain the procedure.
