Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to create a basis for modeling of technical performance and cost structure in flexible manufacturing systems (FMS). Time sharing between manufacturing phases and the cost of the system parts and implementing activities are considered. The technical performance is divided into theoretical capacity and difficulties and trade offs. The flexibility is also considered. The costs are studied separately for nine features. In addition to the hardware, software and working costs are the effects of standardization and modularization studied.

In the second part of the paper the FMS-model of Ranta and Alabian has been critically reviewed and some ideas for modification are presented. Finally some of the lessons learned during this work are listed.
