This study develops a methodology for forming machine cells using part's design and manufacturing dissimilarities. The proposed methodology is divided into two sequential phases. In phase I parts are grouped into families based upon their design and manufacturing attributes. In phase II, the machines are grouped into manufacturing cells based on relevant operational costs and the various cells are assigned part families using an optimization technique.
