Multiple Routings and Capacity Consideration in Group Technology Applications.
This paper addresses the problem of manufacturing cell formation, given multiple part routings, and multiple functionally similar work-centers. The suggested choice of part routings favors the decomposition of the manufacturing ...
Development and Application of a Knowledge Based System for Cellubr Manufacturing.
The Inter Class Traffic Minimization Method (ICTMM) that arranges the production equipment of a machine shop into manufacturing cells in order to minimize the inter cell trafflc of parts is presented in this paper. All ...
Formation of Manufacturing Cells: An Algorithm for Minimizing the Inter-Cell Traffic.
In this paper, we propose a parametrized algorithm to decompose a manufacturing system into manufacturing cells. The objective is to minimize the inter-cell traffic. The algorithm is based on a proximiq index defined between ...
Special Feature of Precedence Network Charts.
A recurring problem in precedence project planning networks is the time analysis of hammock activities. It is common practice in network logic drawings to 'bridge' some points with hammock activities as a flexible means ...
Generalization and Implementation of the GP Method to Generate Manufacturing Cell and Part Families.
We present an algorithm that considers a set of product types and a set of machine types. The algorithm works out a partition of p subsets of product types, called product families, and a partition of q subsets of machine ...
