This research proposes an approach to design and to manage Cellular Reconfigurable Manufacturing Systems (CRMSs) from a multi-product and multi-period perspective. The production environment consists of multiple cells of machines equipped with Reconfigurable Machine Tools (RMTs) made of basic and auxiliary custom modules to perform specific tasks. The approach acts into two steps; the former is the machine cell design phase, assigning machines to cells, the latter is the cell loading phase, assigning modules to each machine and cell. The goal is to guarantee the economic sustainability of the manufacturing system by exploring how to best balance the part flow among machines already equipped with the required modules and the effort to install the necessary modules on the machine on which the part is located.

Abstract

This research proposes an approach to design and to manage Cellular Reconfigurable Manufacturing Systems (CRMSs) from a multi-product and multi-period perspective. The production environment consists of multiple cells of machines equipped with Reconfigurable Machine Tools (RMTs) made of basic and auxiliary custom modules to perform specific tasks. The approach acts into two steps; the former is the machine cell design phase, assigning machines to cells, the latter is the cell loading phase, assigning modules to each machine and cell. The goal is to guarantee the economic sustainability of the manufacturing system by exploring how to best balance the part flow among machines already equipped with the required modules and the effort to install the necessary modules on the machine on which the part is located.
