This paper analyses and evaluates six of the promising cell formation techniques by comparing and contrasting them in relation to the scores of efficiency indices of the exceptional elements and inner-cell densities, work-load balance, and under-utilizations in different scenarios. Accordingly, all six are more or less altered with proper extensions to realize a broader capability. Effectiveness of the suggested efficiency measures in the evaluation is also illustrated. Each technique seems to have a favourite operating area of its own considering a variety of factors. © 1994 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.

Routing-based reactive scheduling policies for machine failures in job shops Sabuncuoğlu, İ.; Kutanoğlu, E. (Taylor & Francis, 2001)A scheduling and control system can be viewed as a vital component of modern manufacturing systems that determines companies’ overall performance in their respective supply chains. This paper studies reactive scheduling ...
A note on the within-cell layout problem based on operation sequences Aktürk, M. S. (Taylor & Francis, 1996)The existing studies in the literature usually ignore the within-cell layout problem while forming part families and manufacturing cells. A new approach is proposed to solve the part-family and machine-cell formation problem ...
Two-machine flowshop scheduling with flexible operations and controllable processing times Uruk, Z.; Gultekin H.; Akturk, M. S. (2013)We consider a two-machine flowshop scheduling problem with identical jobs. Each of these jobs has three operations, where the first operation must be performed on the first machine, the second operation must be performed ...
