Performance analysis of a flexible manufacturing system: a statistical approach

ABSTRACT
This study focuses on the typical Job Shop plant conficgurations for the semiautomatic manufacturing of parts produced in limited unitary quantities. The treatment consists on quantitative evaluation of the technological performance of a Flexible Manufacturing System (FMS) with particular reference to the Printed Circuit Board Assembly (PCBA) sector. Response Surface Methodology (RSM), combining mathematical and statistical techniques to study the morphology of the responce surface representing performance cost of system configurations, is applied for balancing the capacities of the Work Centres of a PCBA leading industry. The goal of the study is to optimize manufacturing system performance comparing the results obtained from two different starting configurations. The first one is individuated by an analytical design whereas the second one is obtained by means of Taguchi approach based on robust design concept to minimize output variations due to uncontrollable factors.
