Abstract

This paper deals with a simulation study to investigate how to optimize manufacturing time in Flexible Manufacturing Systems. The combination of flexible machines and flexible operational sequences simulation software are used to obtain a full routing flexibility in FMS. Flexibility in manufacturing systems offers reducing waiting time, decreasing cost, and increasing efficiency. This paper entails an efficient real-time flexible routing strategy, to maximize the system throughput by balancing the workload and minimize the system unbalance. Full routing flexibility provides significant enhancement in the system improvement and gives how a routing control policies influence condition of a system.
