    Configuration design in scalable reconfigurable manufacturing systems (RMS); a case of single-product flow line (SPFL)

    , Article International Journal of Production Research ; 2017 , Pages 1-23 ; 00207543 (ISSN) Moghaddam, S. K ; Houshmand, M ; Fatahi Valilai, O ; Sharif University of Technology
    Abstract
    The dynamic nature of today’s manufacturing industry, which is caused by the intense global competition and constant technological advancements, requires systems that are highly adaptive and responsive to demand fluctuations. Reconfigurable manufacturing systems (RMS) enable such responsiveness through their main characteristics. This paper addresses the problem of RMS configuration design, where the demand of a single product varies throughout its production life cycle, and the system configuration must change accordingly to satisfy the required demand with minimum cost. A two-phased method is developed to handle the primary system configuration design and the necessary system... 

    Configuration design of scalable reconfigurable manufacturing systems for part family

    Abstract
    Intense global competition, dynamic product variations, and rapid technological developments force manufacturing systems to adapt and respond quickly to various changes in the market. Such responsiveness could be achieved through new paradigms such as Reconfigurable manufacturing systems (RMS). In this paper, the problem of configuration design for a scalable reconfigurable RMS that produces different products of a part family is addressed. In order to handle demand fluctuations of products throughout their lifecycles with minimum cost, RMS configurations must change as well. Two different approaches are developed for addressing the system configuration design in different periods. Both...
