A flexible manufacturing system (FMS) is a manufacturing system in which there is some amount of flexibility that allows the system to react in the case of changes, whether predicted or unpredicted. This flexibility is generally considered to fall into two categories, 1. Machine flexibility, covers the system's ability to be changed to produce new product types, and ability to change the order of operations executed on a part. 2.Routing flexibility, which consists of the ability to use multiple machines to perform the same operation on a part, as well as the system's ability to absorb large-scale changes, such as in volume, capacity, or capability.The main advantages of an FMS is its high flexibility in managing manufacturing resources like time and effort in order to manufacture a new product. The best application of an FMS is in the production of small sets of products like those from a mass production.

FLEXIBLE MANUFACTURING SYSTEMS

BY,
A. SYEDSHARBUDEEN
V. SATHEESH


DEFINITION

A FLEXIBLE MANUFACTURING SYSTEM (FMS) IS A SET OF NUMERICALLY CONTROLLED MACHINE TOOLS AND SUPPORTING WORKSTATIONS CONNECTED BY AN AUTOMATED MATERIAL HANDLING SYSTEM AND CONTROLLED BY A CENTRAL COMPUTER


FMS FEATURES

MANY PART TYPES CAN BE LOADED
PARTS CAN ARRIVE AT MACHINES IN ANY SEQUENCE
PARTS IDENTIFIED BY CODES
MANY MACHINES CAN BE INCLUDED
SMALL FMS LEAD TO FLEXIBLE CELLS

STRATGIEG AND DESIGNE OF MANUFACTURING SYSTEM


Manufacturing Systems

Custom Manufacturing
Continuous Manufacturing
Intermittent Manufacturing
Flexible Manufacturing
Just-In-Time Manufacturing

Custom Manufacturing

Oldest production system
Used to produce a smaller number of products to a customer’s order
Highly skilled workers machines to produce individual parts
Examples – spacecraft, stamping dies, special purpose machines
Continuous Manufacturing


Special purpose machines are used to produce large quantities of products
Products have limited variations
Uniform parts flow from station to station
Semiskilled workers operate the stations
Examples – automobiles, household appliances, furniture, paper, and lumber

FMS (Flexible Manufacturing Systems

Definition
A Flexible Manufacturing System (FMS) is a production system consisting of a set of identical and/or complementary numerically controlled machine which are connected through an automated transportation system.
each process in FMS is controlled by a dedicated computer (FMS cell computer).

Equipment of FMS

Primary equipment
work centers
Universal machining centers (prismatic FMSs)
Turning centers (rotational FMSs)
Grinding machines
Nibbling machines
Process centers
Wash machines
Coordinate measuring machines
Robotic work stations
Manual workstations

FMS different approaches

The capability of producing different parts without major retooling

A measure of how fast the company converts its process/es from making an old line of products to produce a new product

The ability to change a production schedule, to modify a part, or to handle multiple parts


Disadvantage of using FMS

Limited ability to adapt to changes in product or product mix (ex:machines are of limited capacity and the tooling necessary for products, even of the same family, is not always feasible in a given FMS)
Substantial pre-planning activity
Expensive, costing millions of dollars
Technological problems of exact component positioning and precise timing necessary to process a component
Sophisticated manufacturing systems


FMS Layouts Continued

Ladder Layout:
Parts can be sent to any machine in any sequence
Parts not limited to particular part families

Open Field Layout:
Most complex FMS layout
Includes several support stations
