Paper Title:
Analyze and Design a New Type of Production Line
  Abstract

Manufacturing companies today are looking for the new manufacturing methods.These companies are designing elaborate manufacturing systems in an attempt to meet market trend as well as diverse customer requirements.Recently these manufacturing systems have most often taken the form of Continuous Flow Manufacturing systems, which is represented by one long transfer line containing all relevant operations,or workstations,required to produce a given product.A transfer line of this type is quite susceptible to individual workstation performance,because a breakdown at any one of the workstation would cause the entire line to stop and production to cease. Due to the inherent advantages of Cellular Manufacturing to meet requirements customer, increase productivity, reduce costs,the Cellular Manufacturing can improve the effectiveness of most production line. This paper discusses the development and implementation of a combined production line that takes some its advantages from Continuous Flow Manufacturing and Cellular Manufacturing.
