This paper presents a novel mixed-integer nonlinear programming model for the group layout (GL) design of a dynamic cellular manufacturing system (DCMS). A novel aspect of this model is concurrently making the cell formation (CF) and GL decisions in a dynamic environment. Another compromising aspect of this model is the utilization of multi-rows layout to locate machines in the cells configured with flexible shapes. The proposed model incorporates several design features including alternate… CONTINUE READING
