SETTING UP DISAGGREGATED MANUFACTURING CELLS IN THE PARTS MANUFACTURING PLANT

Abstract

This paper reports the findings of a comprehensive study performed to set-up disaggregated manufacturing cells in the Parts Manufacturing Plant (PMP) of a major truck manufacturing company which included 810 parts and 62 machine types assigned to 12 manufacturing cells. The application described in the paper has benefited from a model and a solution technique previously proposed by the authors' [14] for simultaneously dealing with duplicating bottleneck machines and subcontracting bottleneck parts in cellular manufacturing systems under budgetary limitations. The results reported here would enable the management of the PMP decide as to which parts should be subcontracted and which machines should be duplicated in the long run to realize net savings in cost.
