    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...

    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...

    Abstract
    The Reconfigurable manufacturing system (RMS) was first introduced in 1996 with the ability to respond quickly to market changes and in response to global competition between companies. The effort of this research is to expand the problem presented in the Moghaddam et al. (2019) by introducing the concept of raw materials for the production of parts and related issues such as purchasing and warehousing raw materials, and providing a suitable solution to the problem. In the basic article, the RMS should utilize the best combination of machines and their configurations in proportion to the demand of the products in order to minimize the cost and produce all the demand.

    Abstract
    This article introduces a methodology to integrate fuzzy multiattribute decision making (FMADM) and fuzzy simulation. According to this method, a fuzzy simulation method is applied to study the effect of different alternative on system's performance and decision criteria taking into account fuzzy inputs. Using a fuzzy analytical hierarchy process (FAHP) and the results of fuzzy simulation, a FMADM is conducted to select the best alternative. This article introduces how to incorporate fuzzy set theory with discrete-event simulation in order to model uncertain activity duration in simulating a realworld system, especially when insufficient or no sample data are available. A case study is...
