Here is everything you need to know about FMS in one authoritative, up-to-date source. Flexible Manufacturing Systems presents a comprehensive and systematic overview of both the design models and quantitative solution methods for FMS support, configuration, and operation. You'll get complete definitions of FMS, its subsystems, and the term "flexibility," coverage of the complete FMS planning process from design to operation, with discussion of the full spectrum of long-range and short-range planning problems.quantitative models for evaluating the performance of each FMS design alternative.illustrations for each algorithm used, all taken from actual industrial FMSs, decision models for optimizing FMS routing, capacity, and equipment with numerical examples.discussion of classical approaches to performance evaluation as well as blocking and starving (with approximation procedures).and much more.

A comprehensive and systematic overview of design models and quantitative solution techniques for the support and configuration of flexible manufacturing systems (FMS). Details current concepts used in determining the capabilities of FMS along with approaches to long and short term decision problems. Contains a copious amount of numerical examples and illustrative problems to facilitate understanding of the models presented.From the Inside Flap:
With shortening product lifetimes requiring trigger-fast manufacturing response to market changes, the Flexible Manufacturing System (FMS) concept of short lead times, low inventory, and high adaptability should be having a field day. But the large amount of planning knowledge and the dispersed, interdisciplinary nature of the sources of that valuable information have held FMS back. Now, this comprehensive and systematic overview of both the design models and quantitative solution methods for FMS support, configuration, and operation rectifies that problem. Students, production managers/planners, and FMS installation planners can now find everything they need in one authoritative and up-to-date source, including...
