INTELLIGENT DECISION SUPPORT SYSTEM FOR FMS MACHINE TOOL SUBSYSTEM DESIGN

Print

ABSTRACT

The aim of the article is to develop a new metodology of analysis and evaluation of Flexible Manufacturing System (FMS) machine tool subsystem design configurations. It examines the use an integrated, systemic, global and user oriented approach for the complex problem of selecting among several configuration alternatives the most suitable for a specific case. The metodology is implemented using the Decision Support System framework, offering an objective tool to help managers and engineers during the design stage of the developeent cycle of an flexible manufacturing systems.
