COMPUTER AIDED FMS MACHINE TOOLS SUBSYSTEM SELECTION USING THE EVOLUTIONARY SYSTEM OF MULTICRITERIA ANALYSIS

Print

ABSTRACT

One of the key problems in the area of flexible manufacturing systems (FMS) design is a problem of proper design of manufacturing subsystem and especially the machine tools selection. Although the problem seems to be simple, in fact it is difficult to solve because of large variety and number of parameters and also brief foredesign which are highly influential for the decision. This study shows possibility of implementation the Evolutionary System of Multicriteria Analysis <ESAW> for defining the importance of solutions in the process of casing-class FMS machine tools selection.
