Sequencing for Batch Production in a Group Flowline Machine Shop

EA Onyeagoro

Abstract


The purpose of the paper is to develop a useful technique for sequencing batches of components through machine shops arranged under the group flowline production system. The approach is to apply a modified version of Petrov's group flowline technique for machining components which follow a unidirectional route. An outline of the use of the technique is given and a numerical example is included at the end of the paper to demonstrate the application of the new method.
