Application of Research Models and Techniques in Flexible Manufacturing Systems
European Journal of Operational Research
In this paper, classification of Flexible Manufacturing Systems (FMSs) and flexibilities is presented. It would be difficult to efficiently implement an FMS without solving its design problems. These problems, as well as a number of operations problems are discussed. A planning and scheduling framework is developed. Based on this framework, the relevant FMS literature is discussed. Most of the tools and techniques applicable for solving FMS problems are listed. Recommendations for future research are also presented.
