Abstract

Flexible manufacturing systems are becoming increasingly important as customers increasingly want customized products. Also, the trend of the product life cycles to become shorter and shorter causes the proliferation of flexible manufacturing systems. Proper layout is key to making the manufacturing system truly flexible. Novel research and this article show how the Systematic Layout Planning method can be applied to the design of flexible manufacturing systems and, going further, how the design process can be supported by manufacturing process simulation.
