Class: Computerized LAyout Solutions Using Simulated Annealing
A new method (Computerized LAyout Solutions using Simulated annealing - CLASS) that considers the inter-cell and intra-cell layout problems in a cellular manufacturing environment is presented. It addresses the relative ...
Manufacturing Cell Formation Under Random Product Demand
The performance of cellular manufacturing systems is intrinsically sensitive to demand variations and machine breakdowns. A cell formation methodology that addresses, during the shop design stage, system robustness with ...
Manufacturing Cell Formation with Multiple, Functionally Identical Machines
A comprehensive methodology for the formation of manufacturing cells in an environment consisting of unique as well as multiple, functionally identical machines is presented in this paper. The proposed method presupposes ...
A Practical Method for Design of Hybrid-Type Production Facilities
A comprehensive methodology for the design of hybrid-type production shops that comprise both manufacturing cells and individual workcenters is presented. It targets the minimization of the material handling effort within ...
Manufacturing Cell Formation in the Case of Multi-Manufacturing Processes
The determination of a good decomposition of a manufacturing system into manufacturing cells, when various manufacturing processes are available for each type of product, is addressed in this paper. We propose a simple ...
Manufacturing Cell Design Using Simulated Annealing: an Industrial Application
In this paper, we give a brief summary of simulated annealing procedures used to solve combinatorial optimization problems. We then present the manufacturing cell design problem which consists of designing cells of limited ...
