Abstract

A three-phase network flow base procedure is developed to solve machine-part grouping problems in a cellular manufacturing environment. The approach consists of three phases. The first phase computes a functional relationship between machines to represent the system as a network. The second phase proposes a network partitioning methodology for cell formation. The last phase identifies the corresponding part families. Mathematical formulations are presented and discussed.
