A Mathematical Programming Model for Cell Formation Problem with Machine Replication

Abstract

Cell formation (CF) is a crucial aspect in the design of cellular manufacturing (CM) systems.This paper develops a comprehensive mathematical programmingmodel for the cell formation problem, where product demands, cell size limits, sequence of operations, multiple units of identical machines, machine capacity, or machine cost are all considered. In this… (More)
