COMPUTER AIDED FMS MACHINE TOOLS SUBSYSTEM SELECTION – CONCEPTION OF METHODOLOGY

Print
The aim of the article is to present a new methodology of computer aided FMS machine tools selection. Flexible manufacturing systems (FMSs) are systems which allows manufacturing parts in small lot sizes keeping high level of productivity and low costs of production. Despite the fact applied research on designing FMS systems have been continued for several years there are no methodical solution that can help design engineers to select machine tools for FMS in a optimal way. This article shows the main algorithm and stages of the methodology which is based on computer database systems, algorithms of elimination and method of multicriteria optimisation.
