Abstract

In the recent years a new manufacturing system has emerged known as Cellular Manufacturing (CM) which utilizes the philosophy of group technology. Cellular manufacturing also known as group production can be described as a manufacturing process which produces families of parts within a single line or a group of machines operated manually or automatically. This paper discuses the available techniques used for cluster analysis and design of manufacturing cells and also illustrates a list of available methods and techniques used for clustering and their application in the manufacturing area.
