Abstract

Virtual Cellular Manufacturing system (VCMs) is investigated as an alternative approach to implement cellular manufacturing system, which featured in form cells temporary and logical. The configuration of virtual cells is a complex and time consuming NP-hard problem. This paper aims to design an effective methodology to form novel virtual cells and operation take care of allocation of shared machines and batch size of parts. A genetic algorithm is developed in two steps to find a shared machine location and optimal batch size of cell configuration that the whole manufacturing system has minimized total make span. The proposed method was implemented on a case study dataset to examine its feasibility and efficiency by comparing its performance to Cellular Manufacturing system (CMs) and conventional VCMs configuration method.
