Group technology. Analysis of selected models and algorithms

Group technology aims at grouping machines into machine cells and parts into part families. Traditional methods of group technology are based on classification and coding systems. A more practical and cost-effective approach uses cluster analysis. Two formulations of the GT problem are frequently used; matrix formulation and mathematical programming formulation. This paper reviews numerous applications of models and algorithms in group technology. The computational experience with selected heuristics is reported.
