Cellular manufacturing system (CMS) makes use of application of group technology. The objective of cell formation problems (CFP) in CMS is to identify part families and machine cells in order to minimize the intercellular movement and to maximize the machine utilization within a cell. Previous study in CFP generally focused on maximizing grouping efficacy(More)
In this paper, an iterative procedure viz. assignment allocation algorithm has been employed to cell formation problem by solving a nonlinear mathematical model. The algorithm has been applied to ten benchmark problems and through computational experimentation it has been observed that the algorithm provides better results for six of the problems that have(More)
