The Machine-Part Cell Formation is the problem of creating manufacture cells aiming best production flow of manageable sub-systems. Systems automation and control can be improved by the aggregation of similar parts into families, and machines into independent cells that completely manufactures families of parts. The objective of the problem is to form a given number of disjoint parts-machines groups in which products do not have to move from one cell to the other to be processed. This problem… CONTINUE READING
